TOKYO DOME CITY WINTER LIGHTS GARDEN
Tokyo Dome City’s highlight of the winter is the winter illumination. This year’s title is “Lovely Sweets -shining melty boxes-.” There are sweet motif works that anyone from adults to children can enjoy.
A candy house just like out of a children’s story is located on the LaQua area. A six meters high house is decollated with twinkling macaroons and candies. In the house, ornaments of sweets made by famous patissiers are displayed. They are changed per month according to monthly theme. You cannot miss the collaboration between the illumination and the excellent patissiers’ works.
In the LaQua area, there are also regular pieces of every year, “Galaxy Dome” and “Milky Way.” Some illuminations have a high-technology sensor “Kinect for Windows,” which catches people’s movement. It would react to people’s particular movement and change lightings. You can enjoy collaboration between light and music in Galaxy Dome. Please try in pairs what would happen in there.
Very photogenic shooting spot is “Dreaming Sweets Tree” which is decorated with ornaments of sweets. Crystal Avenue is next to it, and there is “Sparkling Candy Garden” with variety of candies and a big cake. A lighting curtain above the candies is 90 meters in length. You can enjoy dreamy illumination with reflection on the water.
“Macaroon Tunnel” was designed with the image of macaroon. You can enjoy combination illumination and music. “Fascinating Ice Cream” is collaborated with Baskin-Robbins that you can take picture with sparkling ice cream. There are many things to recommend. So, please come and enjoy the Tokyo Dome with your family, friends and love one.
