Candle Night for 1 Million People

arrowarrowThe gMillion Candle Nighth was started in 2003 under the slogan of gTurn off the lights and enjoy a slow night. The gCandle Night for a Million Peopleh was started in 2003 by Daichi wo Mamoru Kai. For two hours from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on the summer and winter solstices, we advocate turning off the lights and having a time for each person to think slowly under the light of a candle. In this unusual and relaxing time, each person can spend time in his or her own way and pause for a moment to think. Each person is free to think about, for example, the environment, peace, recovery from the disaster, food, and so on. We are free, yet connected. The gCandle Night for a Million Peopleh is a place where you can feel a strange sense of unity.
This year, Zojoji Temple will hold gCandle Night for a Million People @ Zojoji Temple 2024h again. The Candle Night event will provide an opportunity to think about the environment, peace, recovery from the earthquake, food, etc., and to spend a slow time in a different time than usual, thinking about things in your own way. We will send out the movement of gTurn off the lights and enjoy a slow nighth from Japan to the world. This year, under the keyword of gSupporting the Future of the Earth,h many contents will be gathered to provide hints for finding actions you can take yourself.
This year, the gCandle Spoth will feature a new message candle tree, which will be decorated in 17 different colors, each representing one of the 17 goals of the SDGs. Two types of trees will be set up: one to support the future of the earth and the other to wish for Noto's recovery. The messages wishing for Noto's recovery will be delivered to Noto at a later date along with the collected donations.
The Candle Night Marche will bring together many contents that will provide hints for actions you can take toward the future of the earth. The nighttime beauty brand gYOLUh will show the planetarium gYOLU Candle Night under the Starry Sky,h which provides an opportunity to think about the global environment while being soothed by a star-filled sky. In addition, there will be a booth introducing the HTT (reduce, create, and store electricity) initiative promoted by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, a marcheL featuring food loss ingredients from Oisix La Daichi's three food delivery brands, Oisix, Radishbo-ya, and Daichi wo Mamoru Kai, and sales of products with donations to support initiatives to solve social issues. The event will also feature 13 booths selling products with donations to support efforts to solve social issues.
Friday, June 21, in conjunction with the summer solstice, you too can turn off the lights. gTurn off the lights and enjoy a slow night.h
