Kingdom of Flowers & Lights

Magical light-up on New Year's Day at Huis Ten Bosch

 By Takako Sakamoto   Jan 15, 2016

Huis Ten Bosch has been selected as the #1 Illumination Spot in Japan for three consecutive years, and I just wondered... how awesome could the illumination of Huis Ten Bosch be?

To answer this question, I went to see it during this New Year holiday. In this winter season (October to April), the illumination titled, "Kingdom of Flowers & Lights" was on, and that's what I saw. The main attraction of this illumination is the 66 meters high "Waterfall of Light". You just have to see it to believe how beautiful it is. I bet you will be mesmerized by the magic that 13 million LED lights cast at Huis Ten Bosch!

Totally agree with the previous commentator! If there was no description below, I wouldn't believe that this place is in Japan :) And the photos are so great, I can't even imagine how beautiful it is in reality!

Yes, I noticed that! :) People in Tokyo are always in a hurry and think that I can see "everything" in Tokyo, why to travel far away?! ))) But I like to travel and I prefer smaller towns and nature. I liked Nagano Prefecture very much. I visited Yudanaka, Azumino, Matsumoto, Narai and few more places there.
