Winter Illumination @ Tobu Hybrid Park | MIYASHIRO

October 28, 2017 @ 17:00 - February 12, 2018 @ 20:00

Tobu Zoo Illumination – Every year Tobu Zoo puts on a fantastic night illumination show for the winter months. This year, 2017, it starts on the 28th of October and will run until the 12th of February. The park uses smoke, light and music to add to the ambience of the night illumination. This year they have upscaled the performance making it the largest LED vision performance of its kind in the Kanto area.

Over 2,000,000 lights are used, to create an illuminated flower garden in Heartful Garden which is only a couple of years old. The area covers 8,000 metre squared. Kids can enjoy animals made out of flowers and/or light, snowmen and winter scenes. Couples can walk in a tunnel of love, “Love Lock”, built especially for the occsassion, and take in the romantic atmosphere of the park lit up at night. And this year they have a new area representing the flowers of the four seasons.
