Yusui Tunnel Park Christmas Lights

Holiday illumination under the earth

By Mandy Bartok    - 1 min read

The Yusui Tunnel in Takamori was once created to connect the rail lines of Takamori (south of Mt Aso) and Takachiho, in nearby Miyazaki prefecture. The line was never extended but the tunnel doesn't exactly stand idle. In winter, the tunnel displays decorated Christmas trees along its 150 meter length. The illumination culminates with the fascinating "Water Pearl", a sound and light display where the water droplets appear to dance and defy gravity.
