Enjoy the illuminations reminiscent of light filtering through the trees and a night sky filled with flickering fireflies as well as the twinkling bamboo tunnel "Brilliant Path", with the gentle glow of paper lanterns along the path to create an otherworldly atmosphere.
This year, we have a new addition - the "Brilliant Garden" area !! Approximately 5,000 bulbs of warm-colored lights decorate the trees, blending naturally with the landscape and inviting visitors to the "Brilliant Path".
