Autumn Leaves Light up Shinrin Park | NAMEGAWA
November 11, 2017 @ 16:30 - December 3, 2017 @ 20:30￥410
Autumn Leaves Light up Shinrin Park – Also known as Musashi Kyuryo National Goverment Park, is a 304 hectare park in Namegawa, rural Saitama. You can enjoy night illumination here at the central gate area, three different times during autumn and winter annually. The Halloween Night Light up is the first which ends early November. Once the Halloween night illumination is over they set up for the Autumn Leave light up illumination which is available mid November to early December. Finally, the winter night illumination runs in December and early January.
Autumn Leaves Light up Shinrin Park is available when the weather is suitable. They don’t open the park on nights that it is raining. They announce by 2 pm on their website whether the park will be closed that night or not. You will find the link in the grey details box below the “related posts”. During the Autumn Leaves Light up Shinrin Park the park is open from 4.30 pm to 8.30 pm in November and for the few days in December the park is open from 4 pm.
Autumn Leaves Light Up Shinrin Park Access
Parking is no longer free for the night illumination as it has been in previous years. You can park at the central gate only at night. It gets quite crowded at weekends so it is advised to arrive early. They now charge 300 yen for parking at night. Sometimes neighbouring houses of the park offer parking at reduced prices at the weekend.
By public transport you can get a shuttle bus to the park from Shinrin Park Station on the Tobu Tojo Line. It runs on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights only during the Autumn Leave light up period:
