Most people flock to Japan for its famous spring (sakura) season; but if you want to shake things up a bit, you should take the time to check out some other scenes. For starters, Japan has some of the world’s highly-acclaimed illumination displays, and for this, there is one place that you must NOT miss out on and it is Nabana no Sato park in Kuwana city!
The best part? The park is easily reached by train from Kyoto, Nagoya or Osaka as a day trip. (More info on this by the end of the article). .
Nabana no Sato is a part of Nagashima Resort and it is basically a massive botanical park found in Mie Prefecture. During the warmer seasons, it hosts one of the largest flower festivals in Japan — but come mid-October to early may, Nabana no Sato transforms into one of the largest winter illumination displays in the country with about a million of LED light displays! It sounds insane, but I’m pretty sure the photos above are proof to the dazzling illuminations that they put every year.
