Tokyo's Biggest Amusement Park Yomiuriland's Light up Is Exactly Where You Need to Be This Winter!





Tokyo Winter Illumination 2018

Yomiuriland Amusement Park is Tokyo's biggest and 
one of Japan's favorite amusement parks
It is an all-inclusive amusement park that 
is owned by the Tokyo baseball team, the Yomiuri Giants. 
Just a 20~30min train ride from Shinjuku, 
you can enjoy over 44 rides and attractions.
During the summer Yomiuriland also has a water park area 
in addition to the theme park.
But as it gets colder,
the pools are closed and Yomiuriland gets ready for their winter attractions.
One of the spectacles that makes Yomiuriland so popular all over Tokyo
 is the scene of wonderfully lit illuminations that shine across all the park.
During the holidays there are a few of places you can see Tokyo's light up,
but we mean it when we say NONE OF THEM even come close to Yomiuriland Amusement Park.

This year Yomiuriland added even more Christmas lights
allowing those to not only enjoy the lights as you walk around the park,
but as you are riding the rides as well!

✨Yomiuriland Illumination
"Jewellumination"
The illumination starts at 4pm and runs until the park closes at 8:30pm.
You can see the light up in all seven different areas which are all close to another and have their own theme. 
Walking around Yomiuriland at night is definitely beautiful,
but this time we wanted to focus on some rides that you can enjoy both
the enjoyments of being at an amusement park and
the beauty of the illumination!


 Riding the Gondola
Once you arrive at Keio Yomiuriland Station,
you take a gondola and it is the best opening view to Yomiuriland Amusement Park!
The gondola is free and you can ride it as much as you'd like,
so if you would come before it got dark you can hop on the gondola
and get a view of the whole park light up!!


The Rollercoaster, Bandit
Yomiuriland's rollercoaster is the most popular attraction in the park.
It runs at full speed while taking a number of turns and going up and down at a maximum of 110km/h in a forest which can feel season.
Aside from the gondola,
the roller coaster is another great place to enjoy the light up from great heights.


Ferris Wheel
One more thing that we recommend is riding Ferris wheels in the night. 
The view from the Ferris wheel is so amazing!!
When you see the view from the top of the Ferris wheel,
you will find see all the areas, colors, and patterns in the park all at once.


Grabbing a Bite
 The illumination even goes as far as the food!
Near the entrance is Restaurant Goodday and their restaurant
and food has an illuminant effect.

Illuminate pudding
Aside from the food at the restaurant,
there are a few theme park snacks that go along with the light up theme!

Light up cotton candy

Electric bulb soda 
It wouldn't be an amusement park without plenty of food to munch on!

Fountain Show and Dance
The highlight was a fountain show that runs every 15mins from 5pm to 8:30. 
At Aqua Jewelry Beach, 
the poolside is vastly covered with beautiful lights.
Each show is different making it really interesting and neat to watch 
which so many people
wanting to stay and see what was next.

New fountains have been included this year 
enabling a more impressive performance.
"Silhouette" (シルエット) at 7:45 
is a dance show synchronized to the movement of lights and music.

Perfect Place to go this Winter in Tokyo
Yomiuriland Amusement Park

At the Yomiuriland's Jewellumination, everywhere in the park is illuminated with 5,000,000 colorful light making it look like millions of jewels shining in the dark creating a breathtaking view. 
Jewellumination is meant to represent precious jewels and is the largest scale illumination in the Kanto region.
This year Yomiuriland took things to the next level by adding new lights
and themes to the park.
As a westerner who feels like Tokyo is lonely during the holidays,
Yomiuriland is really my escape place to fill that void.
If you are in Tokyo during the winter,
you MUST stop by!
We promise you will never see something so extreme
and beautiful that could compare.
