Here are some photos from the ‘Dream Illumination’ event that is taking place in Takamatsu’s Chuo Park this year. The event is on from the 18th December to 25th December. On many of the days there were events happening on the stage (singers and dancers). But on the day I went it was just the illuminations. The centre piece of the park was this large Christmas tree made of hundreds of lights (there is no actual tree inside it).
On entering Chuo Park (no charge!) there are loads of food stalls selling octopus, ramen, soba, okonomiyaki, chips and ice cream (you do have to pay for these though).
I just had some chips, but the meat and fish is there if you want it.
Onto the lights. There are lots of displays around the park with various Christmas themed images. Plenty of snowmen and bells.
There was a bouncy castle in the shape of a rabbit, and a tunnel of blue lights that you could walk through.
Here is one of the stages – it was very quiet, as no one was performing today.
This is Christmas scene, made of out (I think) coloured plastic bags which are rolled into cylinders.
Finally a family of snowmen, near to one of the park tents. More food and drink was being served inside these tents.
