With a plan to reduce energy consumption across the parks under their management, in 2020 the city of Kumamoto carried out a city-wide blanket upgrade of all luminaires to LED across the 550 parks where public lighting was installed, aiming to create a lighting environment with a comforting and reassuring ambience, whilst also effectively addressing the relevant environmental considerations.

The costs of this work were minimized through the use of the LED lamp LEDioc LED LIGHT BULB, which allowed for the existing luminaires to be retained by simply replacing the light source and control gear used in them. Retention of the familiar existing luminaires through replacing only the light source with LED allowed for the preservation of the existing ambience of the park, whilst also effecting widespread energy savings. With a city-wide street lighting upgrade to LED already in progress, the incandescent color used in the lighting of residential areas in this scheme was also selected for the parks lighting, designed to envelop the parks in a warm light and whilst also creating a coordinated and harmonized nightscape.

Contributing towards energy savings and also creating an improved sense of safety during the night, the change to LED lighting has been well received by citizens, who have noted that the parks feel brighter.
