To bring good fortune to Changhua, the Japanese style lanterns “Red Torii” and the Arabic style lanterns “Aladdin’s Lamps” are designed to create an exotic atmosphere. During the harsh time, it is going to bring people the joy of traveling abroad. The year-end and the New Year are the best times of the year. In this year, the scope of lanterns is expanded. For the first time, Christmas lights are installed to decorate Changhua County Museum. It is also the first time to decorate Mt. Bagua Great Buddha Scenic Area with an exotic atmosphere. With prayer and blessing as the themes, Japanese, European, Chinese, and Arabic elements are used to decorate different spots. People are welcome to visit Changhua and pray to Buddha. You may hand in your DIY origami along the Skywalk and hit the bell to pray for good fortune.

At Mt. Bagua Great Buddha Scenic Area Tourist Information Center, color papers are prepared by Changhua County Government to encourage people to join these activities. Visitors are invited to fold origamis and hang them along the Skywalk. People interested in folding origamis can collect colored papers at Mt. Bagua Great Buddha Scenic Area Tourist Information Center and fold origamis there. Starting from the tourist information center, they can walk along the Qifu Boulevard (Prayer Avenue) and pray to the Buddha, watch lanterns, and enjoy night scenes. Then, they can go to the Skywalk and pretend to travel abroad to Japan. Hanging origamis along the Skywalk and make prayers, they may hit the “Bell of Fortune” and pray for lifelong good fortune after leaving Exit 3. Finally, they may return to “Aladdin’s Lamps” and make wishes. In the lantern zone, there are also “Fishes Leap to Catch the Pearl”, “Golden Cow Lights Up Good Fortune”, and many other fortune-bringing lantern zones that offer visitors opportunities to pray for good fortune and pray for better luck in the next year.
