Yomiuri Land Jewellumination
If you’re looking for the most OTT illumination in Tokyo, this is it. Yomiuri Land's annual winter light show will bedazzle even the most ardent illumination-fiend. As the name might suggest, jewels are the focus here: literally millions of colourful LEDs are set up throughout the vast theme park evoking sparkling gems. The park is split into ten areas where visitors can expect to be treated to beautifully lit attractions. In addition to the rainbow-lit, 180-metre-long Fortune Promenade and Crossing Sapphire Passage, this year features a large-scale illumination of a horseshoe surrounded by motifs of jewels. The highlight, however, is the fountain show, with illuminated water in different colours being sprayed into the air to create stunning shapes. Look out for the fountain’s flames and lasers, which are synchronised to the music. The impressive illumination was produced by world-class lighting designer Motoko Ishii, who has worked on past light displays at the theme park. This year she has added warm orange colours to the show, which resemble sunlight and match the theme of the illuminations – ‘Light is Happiness’. While you’re there, make sure to check out the Japanese-style light-up event Hana Akari at nearby Hana Biyori garden.
