Izu Kogen Granillumi -8th Season- opened on the 11th of November, and there's no shortage of things to see and do here.

The event's concept is "A Great Adventure." Evoking this "Great Adventure," the main area of the illuminations is adorned with a depiction of a vast ocean. Whether viewed close up or far away, the visually striking lighting is guaranteed to blow you away.

The impressive "Treasure Island" (宝島, takarajima) and "Rose Garden" (薔薇の園, Bara no En) areas shine thanks to an array of three-dimensional lanterns modeled after jewels and roses. You're sure to get some good photos for your Instagram here.

Izu Kogen Granillumi is Japan's first ever hands-on illumination event. Thanks to "Walk On the Illumi," which debuted in the 7th season, and Zipline Ryuse (ジップライン~流星RYUSE~), which offers an aerial view of the illuminations, the colorfully lit attractions form an ethereal world of light for visitors to experience.

Be sure to check out the three big shows, "Light and Sound," (光と音のショー, hikari to oto no sho), "Full Color Laser Show," (フルカラーレーザーショー, furu kara reza sho) and "Gran Vision Show" (グランビジョンショー, gran bijon sho) as well!
