Information for the annual Night Garden with Halloween decorations and illumination at Kawaguchi Green Center.
Green Center Night Garden
Each year for one weekend (three nights) in Autumn Kawaguchi Green Center has an Halloween themed ‘night garden’. In 2022, it was on at the earlier time of September. But in 2023, it is back on in October. However, it is early in October, so before Halloween weekend. They have Halloween displays and illumination in the garden. For the occasion there are food trucks in the center, selling (among other things) local beer!
The park opens at night, from 5 pm, for the three nights of the event. Please note, that you can not enter the park between 4 and 5 pm. However, on the Saturday and Sunday, the park is open from 9 am to 9 pm. The main entrance is the only gate that is open on those nights. If there is stormy weather the event maybe cancelled. In such an instance, they will post on their website and social media accounts by 3 pm on the day to say the event is cancelled. Also, please note that you cannot use the playground in the park at night.
