It was Halloween season when the video was shot, and Yakurai Garden's park was decorated with many cute jack-o-lanterns to celebrate the occasion.

During spring and fall, when the weather is particularly nice, the park offers a variety of events that allow visitors to see a myriad of colorful flowers in full bloom.
The LED lights and seasonal decorations add to the atmosphere of the park, creating an exciting space.
Yakurai Garden has more than 400 varieties of plants in full bloom from season to season.
There are several flower fields at Yakurai Garden, and at the far end of the garden there's a small hill called "Rainbow Garden Fululu no Oka" (虹色ガーデン ふるるの丘) where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the flowers in full bloom.
The beautiful flower garden at Rainbow Garden Fululu no Oka can be seen from 2:57 in the video.
Red, purple, yellow, white, orange, and other colors are spread out creating a carpet of rainbow colors.
