Published on : Wednesday, February 22, 2017

japanJapan once again proved that it is the undisputed world leader when it comes to extravagant light displays.

 

With impressive festivals featuring millions of colourful bulbs, every winter the towns and cities across the country glow with vibrance. Best of all, these festivals keep going long after holiday cheer has passed, some carrying on well into spring. And, Nabana No Sato is the biggest and most impressive of them all. Hosted annually by the Nagashima hot spring resort in Mie prefecture, just outside of Nagoya, it features more than 8 million LED lights.

 

The preparation time takes up to four months and thousands of workers to bring up this display. First, the foundations are built and then the actual structure that holds the light bulbs.

 

This year’s festival is themed “the beauty of mother nature. it is about 30 meters  in height and 155 meters wide and sprawls over an area of 26,400 square meters. These include a view of Monument Valley in the United States, Antarctica, Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia and views of tanada — Japanese rice terraces.

 

The Nabana No Sato light festival will go on until May 7.

 

There has been 100-meter tunnel of lights in the past years. And, as they say, it is difficult to find someone who dislikes momiji in Japan. The authorities are expecting receive 2 million visitors in 2017 most of whom would be domestic travellers but the numbers of foreigners continues to increase every year.
