Okinawa’s tallest Christmas tree to be lit in Saturday ceremonies

Date Posted: 2007-11-30

Standing 15 meters tall, the community Christmas tree at Goya Intersection in Okinawa City will launch the official beginning of the holiday season Saturday during a lighting ceremony.

The festive holiday season begins under the watchful eye of the Okinawa City Tourism Association and shopping mall stores who want to attract tourists and shoppers to the city, and to Koza Music Town. The Christmas tree is being set up in front of the Ryukyu Bank at the Goya Intersection. The shopkeepers and tourism association executive committee say the tree will be the Okinawa City symbol, and should be easily viewed by thousands of passers by.

Goya Intersection has been undergoing a facelift, and a massive overpass bridge removed in favor of a diagonal pedestrian crossing zone. That, official say, will make the tree viewing more exciting. Drivers claim the new intersection layout, with its pedestrian crossing, has actually made traffic more confusing.
