The Japanese love their gardens, and with the arrival of LED technology, there are new opportunities to showcase garden art not only during the day but also during the night. Every year starting from mid-October to early May, Nagashimacho island in Kuwana attracts thousands of visitors who come to see Nabana No Sato Winter Illumination.

The Nagashima Resort is popular among Japanese vacationers. There is an amusement park with rides, a water park, many restaurants, a mall, and hot springs. Large Japanese gardens are beautiful in full bloom during spring and summer, with colourful carpets of tulips, cosmos, daisies and begonias. However, over eight million LED flowers and trees during winter gather even bigger crowds.
