Hana-Biyori Is a Botanical Garden with Projection Mapping, Otters, and a Flower-Filled Starbucks - All at Yomiuriland

Popular Tokyo amusement park Yomiuriland fills year-round with crowds flocking to have fun with their summer water park, winter holiday lights, and cherry trees that make the park a Tokyo springtime destination. But Yomiuriland's mission is to become a "Super Amusement Park," so with their 70th anniversary celebrations coming to a close, 2020 brought new innovation to the park.

The attractions at Hana-Biyori are a little different from your standard amusement park rollercoasters and Ferris wheels, but that doesn't make the area any less fun. Spectacularly flashy digital art shows take advantage of projection mapping technology to create new spaces, and flowers of all shapes, sizes, and colors decorate Hana-Biyori inside and out.
