“Forest Sound Wonder Christmas 2023” Overview

Since Mori-no-Oto Hall in our facility is a German-style Western-style building, we will hold exhibitions and events with the theme of “Christmas in Germany.” In the concert room in Mori-no-Oto Hall, the space is surrounded by automatic musical instruments such as antique music boxes, and is decorated with warm indoor illuminations using Christmas trees and German-made Christmas ornaments. In addition to holding concerts in which hymns and Christmas songs are performed using automatic musical instruments in a space that resembles a storybook world, the facilities include sales of German-made ornaments and Christmas-designed music boxes, a limited-time cafe menu, Christmas workshops, and more. As a whole, you can enjoy a Christmas mood that is a little different from the rest of the city.
