Toki no Sumika Illumination

An illumination event at Gotemba Kogen Resort

Venue: Gotemba Kogen Resort When: Oct 22nd - Mar 12th 2023

The Toki no Sumika Illumination event takes place at the Gotemba Kogen Resort annually, and is now in its 19th year. There are a range of different displays for visitors to enjoy, including a tunnel of light which runs for almost 400 meters, a 20-meter-high (and 120 year old!) illuminated tree, and the Versailles Lights water laser show. There are plenty of places which make for fantastic photo spots, so be sure to bring your camera!

Admission to the event is free, but there are some areas which come with a fee, such as the aquarium section.

Getting there

The Gotemba Kogen Resort is located around 5 minutes by taxi from Fujioka Station, served by the Gotemba Line.

For those who plan to drive to the venue, it's around a 10 minute drive from either the Gotemba IC or the Susono IC on the Tomei Expressway. Parking is available on-site for over 2000 vehicles.

Love this resort. We've stayed here dozens of times over the years! No frills, basic accommodation, but great place to visit with kids. They do have themed yurts though, which my kids loved! The illumination is actually pretty much all year round, but their winter display is their biggest. Summer one is really pretty too though.

I bet I'll never see it as I don't like to travel during cold and dark time of a year.
