Warm Glow over World Heritage Sites

Panasonic's state-of-the-art technology is helping to illuminate and pass along the great treasures of the world for the next generation. Panasonic LED light bulbs are energy-efficient and long-lasting, reducing costs for electricity and maintenance. The lights also minimize ultraviolet and infrared damage, helping to further reduce maintenance costs for these important cultural properties.

Kiyomizu Temple

For 1,200 years, Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto has celebrated the return of spring. Soft light from Panasonic LED light bulbs, evoking the quality of candlelight, illuminates this treasured temple and is perfectly suited to its enchanting atmosphere. They also provide illumination at night for the temple's bell tower, an Important Cultural Property, which stands guard over the ancient city.

Prague Castle

Prague Castle in Czech Republic is the largest ancient castle in the world and was home to kings in centuries past. Panasonic replaced around 10,000 light bulbs in the castle with clear LED bulbs. The nostalgic glow accentuates the castle's perpetual beauty and helps tell the story of its iconic architecture. The soft lighting blends perfectly the magnificent colors of stained glass, a classic work of Art Nouveau.

Shirakawa-go Village

Traditional Gassho-zukuri houses have been nestled in the village of Shirakawa-go in Japan for 400 years. The village has been taking active steps to protect its natural environment and preserve its timeless landscape for posterity. Houses there are now warmly illuminated with evocative lighting from Panasonic clear LED light bulbs.

Itsukushima Shinto Shrine

On Miyajima Island in Japan, Itsukushima Shrine has stood for 1,400 years, but it has suffered from flooding and deforestation in recent years. Panasonic is contributing to the preservation of this sacred space, where even powerful samurai leaders bowed their heads in prayer. The shrine is beautifully illuminated by over a thousand Panasonic clear LED light bulbs in harmony with the natural landscape.

With advanced LED lighting solutions, Panasonic will continue to contribute to the realization of "A Better Life, A Better World."
