Travel Spotting: Tunnel of Lights, Japan
Even though the Tunnel of Lights, in Nagashima, Japan only opened last week, it has already gained a reputation as one of the best lightshows in the country. The light show gives viewers a chance to experience the tranquility of a Japanese garden with a fantastical display of millions of LED lights. In some places the lights arranged in a straightforward tunnel, and in others they depict scenes, such as natural scenes like Mount Fuji and a rainbow.
The craziest part of it all is that the 7 million LED lights allegedly run on solar power, creating a display that is not only breath-taking but earth-conscious, too.
The Tunnel of Lights is at the top of my list of attractions to see, and I might actually be able to make it happen since the exhibition runs until March of 2013.
If I see it hung-over though (as I tend to be when I am on vacation), I will be that guy walking around in sunglasses at night. I don’t care how amazing it is, light and hangovers do not mix.
