Winter Illuminations in Japan: Nabana no Sato

Que pasa mi amigos? Soy Senor Wada aqui…never mind. “Winter’s coming”, as someone says, Japan gets full of illuminations. Why? Well, Japanese like all light-up stuff, I suppose (like autumn leaves). I am sharing one of the best winter illuminations at Nabana no Sato this time. If you aren’t sure where to check one, this one’s quite promising. (thumb’s up)

About Nabana no Sato

It is in Mie Prefecture, which isn’t a big place, but more people than its population visit this place at this time of the year. There are direct buses from the nearest train station. Admission is 2,300 yen though it comes along with a 1,000-yen gift check that you can use at stores in Nabana no Sato.

In the evening the magical illuminations show up.

How do you find it? Mie Prefecture is a little far but it would be worth taking a visit while in Japan. These winter illuminations are normally available from November to January. Hope it helps.

See you around!
