Ultraman is not one superhero but several as he is known as Ultra Crusaders. Defending Earth from massive beasts and invaders, they are solar-powered giants. Crusaders possess a wide range of superpowers. Their drawback is that they can only stay on the planet for a few minutes before they lose power. Therefore, they must frequently refuel in space.

Several Ultraman films and television shows have been produced since the 1960s. Fans of all eras will be able to enjoy the most popular Ultraman tales and offshoots of recent years, according to the event’s organizers. Along with Ultraman, you’ll also recognize the Ultraman brothers and Anne Yuri from Ultraseven among the setups. Additionally, the astronaut-turned-alien Jamila and the dino Gomora are among the mystical foes to be faced.

In Japan, illuminations, as they are known here, are very popular.

Until March 5, the Ultraman Illumination can be seen at Tsurumi Ryokuchi Park, in-person and online. The tickets start from 1,800 Yen per adult (middle schoolers and up) and 800 Yen per child (elementary school students and under).  As the Osaka Metro group is sponsoring the event, Pitapa IC cardholders will receive a free LED keepsake.

The most excellent way to enjoy the light show is with friends or family. So put on some layers, grab a scarf, and step outside to experience Osaka’s most vibrant and cheerful vibe. It’s going to be LIT!
