If you love plants and illuminations, this is the place! Possibly one of the best in Japan. The location, however, is a bit far off from other large cities / famous sites, so you do have to make a special trip to visit the Nabana no Sato. I have visited the site three times, and it is packed every single time. Bring something to drink and a jacket, as it can get pretty cold at night from the fall season onward. Also wear comfy shoes since there will be a lot of walking involved.

¥2,300 for the admission ticket during the fall and winter seasons, but it comes with a ¥1,000 voucher. If you want to visit the Begonia Garden, it costs exactly ¥1,000; so you can use the voucher, or spend it on gifts / food at other shops inside instead. Illumination starts at 17:20. Recommend arriving by 16:00 to check out the Begonia Garden and other flowers before the illumination. The projection mapping is absolutely stunning and a must see.

I do wish that there are more places to sit inside to let people rest. The huge crowd also makes it very difficult to capture professional photos / videos. But it is highly recommended for couples and families. The older folks who enjoy plants would love it especially during the daytime when there is less people.

By far the best winter illumination I’ve ever been in Japan. It’s a combination of lights and flower garden with arrays of beautiful flowers . I’m in awe of the beauty of nature and the lights. Great place for quality time with your family and friends. The place is kinda secluded and gets too crowded depending on the time you go there. There’s a light show and everything is so beautiful. If you’ll go to Japan you must visit this place. You won’t regret going here. There’s a souvenir shops and food stalls.

Beautiful garden lights. It was much nicer than I expected.

4 stars as entry ticket can only be paid in cash as no credit card is accepted.

Shops and restaurants in the park do accept credit card.

Note that the bus ride back to Nagoya at night is very busy so expect to wait for more then one bus.

One of the most beautiful illumination spots in Japan. A must visit place if you happen to be in Kyoto mid October - May.

Entrance ticket ¥3,300/ person ($31.50) inclusive of roundtrip train tickets, bus & ¥1,000 meal coupon which you can use at restaurant inside the park.

Tips: try to come before the illumination starts. On a clear day, the sunset adds dramatic background for the illumination.

Nabana no Sato is a good place to visit. It is a relax place to visit for the entire family. It has light exhibit. So it will be good to visit late in the afternoon until night time. Even though there are lots of people when we visited the place, it was still easy to go around the place because it has a big area for everyone. The venue is so well layout that you won't miss any part of the garden.
