It is a huge garden with lots of beautiful flowers and illumination. It will take around 1 hour to walk around the garden. And around 30 minutes to go through the tunnels and see the show after 6 pm. just before the show at the blue hours the light were on the music was played. we could see them lighting the pond with dancing light.
We are lucky to meet Sakura in March and not lucky because the tulip are not blooming yet.
Ticket costs 2300 with 2 (500) food vouchers that you can use inside the garden / park.
We arrived a bit early, 3 pm. I think we should have come after 4.30 so that we did not stay doing nothing until 6.
The advantage of coming earlier is you can park close to the gate or you have to park away from it.
Ooh if you love plant, a huge flower market just next to the parking (the one in front of the gate)

The extra-large begonias were amazing. The different-colored tulips were just beautiful.
It became a bit crowded at night as most wanted to be the first to see the Winter Illumination.
We spent more than half a day here but it was worth it.
Lots of restaurant options in case you get hungry.

Nabana No Sato hosts one of the biggest winter illuminations in Japan! At night, the vast field of flowers transforms into a beautiful lights and sounds show. It can get super crowded because everyone obviously wants to experience the beautiful show but it’s super worth it. Very accessible too! I can spend an entire day in this place just appreciating the beautiful flowers in the morning and the lights and sounds at night ❤️ Will definitely go back!

A bit pricey but you get a 1000 yen coupon for food. The flowers were beautiful and got a lot of great photos

A great place for shooting and selfie :p
Amazing flowers and light arrangements but little bit far from city center. Keep more time for exploring this area.
