Located next to Tokyo amusement park Yomiuri Land, Hana Biyori garden is lighting up with a spectacular illumination display between October 29 and April 9 2023. Follow the path lined with 500 takeakari bamboo lanterns and takemari (round ball-like objects made from bamboo) and you’ll come to a historical gate that was transplanted from the Kyoto Imperial Palace.
A new addition this year is a beautiful floral mandala made from bamboo that stands at the end of a little path decorated with differently shaped bamboo lanterns. Throughout the garden, you’ll find more of those lanterns as well as takemari, which will each contain a bouquet resembling the famous ‘flower chandeliers’ that are found in the on-site greenhouse. You also shouldn’t miss the 100 colourful illuminated Japanese umbrellas near the Tahoto pagoda.
While you’re there, make sure to check out the spectacular Jewellumination at Yomiuri Land, too.
The event takes place from 4pm to 8pm. Closing days for December onwards will be announced at a later date.
