Kyoto — Did you know Kyoto had a sister? Us neither, but it’s no surprise to hear it’s the stylish European city of Paris. To help celebrate this bond, Kyoto is hosting a French night-time art festival for one evening only.
Nuit Blanche is held every October in Paris, and has also been held in Brussels, Montreal and Singapore. This is its second time in Kyoto.
In Kyoto’s event, French and Japanese artists are working together across different media and different venues in the city. Music, theatre and outdoor light exhibitions will create a lively festival atmosphere. Best of all, admission to the event is free.
Events begin at 6pm on Friday October 5th, but as there’s so much happening on this evening, it’s best to check out the English website for more details and plan your night carefully.
