Bihoku Hillside Park Winter Illuminations
November 15, 2016 - January 9, 2018| ¥410
This expansive park in Shobara is a favorite destination for dating couples looking for a romantic setting and families after some holiday magic. Deep in the countryside, the lights really pop. The 17:30 switch on is pretty cool and the Japanese village area is surprisingly tasteful. Fireworks every Saturday.
