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.

The show timings are divided into two sessions. Until Jan 13th the show opens at 4.30pm and will have performances at 20-minute intervals from 5pm with the final show at 9.20pm. From January 14th until March 15th, the event opens from 5pm and shows begin at 5.20pm. They will continue every 20 minutes until the final performance 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.
