Client : Japanese Christmas from Yamaguchi Planning Committee


Francisco de Xavier had a special kinship with the City of Yamaguchi. The Yamaguchi Xavier Memorial Church stands on a hill and is visible from afar. As part of the Christmas City event, LPA supervised a Christmas illumination of the church. The large white façade is covered with a gradation of blue and orange light resembling a sunset and the stained glass windows are also illuminated. On December 1st and 24th the colors change to red and white. In the fore garden, candles are randomly placed and lit, creating a fantasy garden.
