“Light of Versailles” Winter Illumination

Photo by Cool-Rock.com used under CC

Each year at Toki no Sumika – a leisure resort in the Gotemba area of Shizuoka – there is a winter illumination involving fountains, water and lots of lights.

There are shows each day at 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, 8:00 and 8:30. On Saturdays and Sundays, there is also a show at 9pm.

Toki no Sumika (or Gotemba Kogen Toki no Sumika to give it its full name) is also the site of the Gotemba Kogen Brewery. So a trip to the light-up can be combined with a trip to the brewery for some dark wintry brews.
