One of the Top Three Light Up Events in Japan!

Ashikaga Flower Park is the only place in Japan chosen as one of ten “Dream Destinations” for global travel by the American news site, CNN. The park holds an illumination event in wintertime.

Amazingly, for seven years in a row the park has garnered first place in the illumination category for Japan’s “Illumination Award” selected by certified professionals knowledgeable about night tourism throughout Japan. This illumination event was also recognized as a Night View Heritage of Japan in 2011 and one of the three major illumination events in Kanto in 2012.

This illumination event is very popular every year.
