Winter Wonderland at Moominvalley 2024-2025

An illumination event where a story comes to life

Venue: Moomin Valley Park When: Late Nov 2024 - Early Mar 2025

Winter wonderland is Moominvalley Park's night illumination event. The theme park is not only lit up at night, but they also use props in the park to enhance the effect. Moreover, from this year, they are also using technology to enhance the experience. By downloading an app on your smart phone you can enjoy a vocal narration, at your own preferred pace, that complements the visual exhibits. The app uses Sound AR by Sony.

Please note that they request you use ear phones to listen to the narration. They also advise that you download the app in advance.

Getting there

Moominvalley park is on the west side of Miyazawa lake in Metsa. Its about a twelve minute walk through Metsa Village from the car park. Parking is free on weekdays, but charged on weekends.

By public transport you can get a bus from Seibu Ikebukuro's Hanno station. Please note that the bus from Higashi Hanno station is currently unavailable - it has been temporarily suspended.
