Nabana no Sato theme park in Kuwana, Mie Prefecture, has recreated a unique set of spectacular illumination sites for this winter's theme of "Earth Landscapes," including the African continent, above, and Monument Valley, Antarctica and Plivice Lakes National Park (below). Other attractions include the flower-themed 100-meter-long tunnel of changing lights. The display runs through May 7, 2017.

Visually stunning, but somehow lacking in the "Christmas" department

I love illuminations here. They are often spectacular - even if this isn't very Christmassy.

Illuminations in Japan are not specifically connected to Christmas. They really don't claim to be either. This Nabana no Sato event goes on until May! It's a festival of light.

Pretty and all, don't get me wrong, but what is the carbon footprint for all these LEDs?
