Can’t-miss elements of this year’s Illumillion
1． Experience the illumination from the sky
Illumillion, the largest illumination festival in the Kanto region, there are ten different areas with a combined size of 40,000㎡, with each area having a different color theme.
But that’s not all. You can walk along the 250 meter-long “Rainbow Lift,” taking a stroll through the sky as you gaze down on the illumination. You can also take a ride in the “Light Balloon,” a hot-air balloon from which you can see the beautiful sights from 15 meters in the air. (“Light Balloon” only runs on predetermined days.)
２．A cutting-edge entertainment show by :Light, Music, Fire, Drone”
Making its first appearance this year, the “City of Light and Music” area is centered around a colossal 15 meter Illumillion tree, contains 500,000 bulbs of light and fire, and, in a very modern twist, you can also see drones “dancing” along to the music.
The full-color LED tree and drones light up the night, and the colors change along with the music. (In the event of rain, the show will be cancelled.)
