LOOK: This Christmas Display in Japan Is a Field of Six Million Colorful Lights

It runs for five months!

(SPOT.ph) When it comes to Christmas décor, Japan doesn't disappoint. Take, for example, the annual Sagamiko Illumillion, a much-awaited attraction that features six million light bulbs of all shapes and sizes spread out in a 40,000-square-meter amusement park. (That's the size of 80 basketball courts put together!) The illumination show opens every winter and runs until April, just in time for the season of cherry blossoms. You can find this long-running attraction at Lake Sagami Pleasure Forest, which is about two hours away from Tokyo, Japan.

Aside from the bands of colorful lights blanketing the hillsides and tunnels of more lights, guests can also enjoy the illuminated rides or grab a bite at the food booths. For this year's Sagamiko Illumillion, the Palace of Light is the newest addition—it's an animated light show that's in sync with a dancing water fountain.

Sagamiko Illumillion runs until April 7, 2019 at Lake Sagami Pleasure Forest, Wakayanagi, Midori-ku Sagamihara-shi, Kanagawa, Japan. It is open daily from 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are priced at 1,000 yen (roughly P464). For more information, visit Sagamiko Illumillion's website.
