Paradise of Children - Illuminations of Motofuchie Park

Street of Takenotsuka

Many of the illuminations in Tokyo are going to end on December 25. This is why I rechecked all the major illuminations and decide which illuminations to see.

Now, I'm coming to Takenotsuka Station, about 30 minutes away from Tokyo Station by train. As soon as I got out of the station,  I realized that the avenue was surrounded by white illuminations all along. This illuminations street is longer than 1km, maybe the longest one in Tokyo.

After a long walk from the station, I reached Motofuchie Park. According to the information on the internet, there are hundreds of thousands of lights here.

Here's a gorgeous gate in silver and blue.

And then, here's another gate which blinks in various colors. This is great because they have built these gates and illuminations in the park where none of them had existed.

I went into the inner area of the park. Ohh, here's a statue of Santa Claus. Ohh... I've now realized that there are quite a few number of KIDS here. I've been to many illuminations spots this year, but all of them are rather for adults. But here, many children are running, jumping and shouting. This must be a paradise of children.

This ship is crowded with many children, too. Thanks to long exposure, nobody appears on the photo, though.

Yes! This is it! What I had wanted to see is these trees! Maybe Sakura trees? A tall, big umbrella of colorful illuminations is set on each of the trees. It was so big that I couldn't take a photograph of all the trees here. Well, it was possible but the photo looked not that beautiful to me.

Surprisingly, the illuminations ended at 9 o'clock. I only had 30 minutes for taking photos today. But I hope these photos let you want to visit here next year.
