200,000 energy-efficient LEDs to illuminate Kyocera headquarters during this holiday season

Kyocera today announced the schedule for the 2012 illumination and concert events to be held at its headquarters building in Kyoto City, Japan from December 13 through 31. Kyocera has been presenting this holiday season illumination event to help invigorate the local community ever since the company’s current headquarters were established in 1998. This year’s illumination has made a complete switch to use of energy-efficient LED lighting in order to reduce energy consumption. In the evenings, the Kyocera headquarters building and the public garden area in front of the main entrance will be transformed with roughly 200,000 LEDs of various colors, background seasonal music, and an 86-meter giant Christmas tree display.

For the giant Christmas tree, the Kyocera headquarters 20-story building is decorated to create the shape of a classic fir tree by utilizing or blocking selected lighting from office space windows on both the east and west sides of the building. Flashing lamps, green and red lighting and a huge Merry X-mas sign complete the festive holiday scene which can be seen from far and near. There will also be a classical concert performed by the Seibo Gakuin Junior High School / High School handbell and chorus groups.
