Plus, the rain came with a benefit when it comes to photographing the scenes.

15250963_10154870580098578_1828191821564015624_oI actually liked it.

If you’re in Japan during the holidays and you want to be dazzled :), there are plenty of winter illuminations all over the the country this time of the year.

Ironically, early last week was when I’ve reached frustration at work where I had to post a sign in every office rooms in my work building “Please turn the lights off when it’s not in use.” 🙂 I always find myself to be the one who have to turn off the light switch. To extend my plea, to my readers, I hope you exercise some energy-saving practices. 😉 🙂

  1. It is a stunning display and your photographs capture the magic, especially with the rain. When I reflect on how much energy these displays consume it does not sit so well. Like you, I switch off lights after leaving rooms. Thank you for sharing this Rommel ☺

  2. What a fairyland of color and hope and beauty, Rommel. Your photos here are truly delightful, each capture a different expression. I really liked seeing the people with umbrellas silhouetted, and smiled at your comment about the zoo display that grew on you. Thanks for sharing this, and thanks too for the environmental nod at the end.

    • Yeah, I was thinking it would be one of those I’ve seen online or on TV. But when you actually see something like this in person, it’s a different feeling whatever your age is.

  3. OH WOW!!! I have NEVER seen anything like this, Rommel!! I agree with the first comment yet not brave enough to write in that language! That “f” word does apply sometimes. This is surreal, fantastic, and I cannot even imagine what it must have felt like walking among these lights. Whoa! Thank you so much for sharing this!! I’ve become illuminated for the day! 🙂 ❤

  4. Thanks for the smile with the lights!it was infusing !
    And the last one –
    Is that what happened to Kim Ks stolen diamond ring? 💎
    Kidding
    And with the lights- in the early 90s I used to leave all lights on and my roommate at that time would shut them off and roll her eyes –
    But somehow – years later –
    I was the one flipping switches with mindfulness.
    My point is that we can learn and so thx for the reminder to readers 😉

  5. Stunning photos! I have never seen illuminations like this. I was fascinated to see the lights on the ground as well as outlining or draping structures Thank you for this as I love to see lights at this time of year.

Don't be shy to say hi.
