TAKAYAMA, Gifu Prefecture--Colorful lights will illuminate the frozen Hirayu Otaki waterfall as part of an annual festival starting Monday in the Oku-Hida Onsen hot spring district.

The waterfall, counted among Japan's 100 greatest, is 64 meters high and 6 meters wide.

The light-up event, part of the Hirayu Otaki ice festival, will be held nightly through Feb. 25, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

During the festival, organized by a local tourist association, visitors will be served Japanese sake and whiskey inside a 15-meter-high kamakura, an igloo-like snow hut.
