An annual winter event, the Country Farm Tokyo German Village Illumination was listed as one of the Top 3 Illuminations in Japan's Kanto Region from 2012 to 2018.
The large illumination features all sorts of colorful images displayed across the grounds of the park, which can be difficult to make out when viewed from up close. We recommend viewing it from the view point on a hill a short distance away to appreciate the full extent of the decorations. There is also a pay cart that moves slowly and automatically through the illumination. You can enjoy a relaxing 6-minute ride through the illuminated park.

Country Farm Tokyo German Village Illumination Summary
The Country Farm Tokyo German Village Illumination lights up at sunset. As the illumination period approaches, the park begins to become crowded with cars and sightseeing buses. Since the roads inside the park are one-way, we recommend that you enter the park early. Also, parking your car in the parking lot near the exit will make it easier to leave when you've finished enjoying the park.
The illumination is on a large site, and there's a lot of walking involved, so if you're bringing children, make sure to keep an eye on them so they don't get lost in the crowds.
Enjoy the crisp winter air and glowing lights at the Country Farm Tokyo German Village Illumination!
