Check out the best illuminations in Japan - at a flower park!
One of my favorite ways to inject a bit of color into the wintertime months here in Japan is to check out some of the many illuminations that are held across the country. The illumination that was judged as the best of 2016, and also looks to be bringing the goods this year is held at Ashikaga Flower Park in Tochigi Prefecture, which makes for a pleasant day trip if you're using Tokyo as a home base for your Japan vacation.
The illumination event here is in its 16th year running - and it's one of the largest events in Japan, with over 4 million lights on display! They have a few separate illumination events running - there's the "Light and Flower Collaboration" which has been running from October the 21st and goes through until mid-November, then there's the "Flower Park Christmas" illuminations from late November through to late December, and finally their New Year's Illuminations which run from New Year's Day to the 4th of February.
What to expect
Enjoy Japan, and Safe Travels!
