At Uminonakamichi Seaside Park, the annual winter event bathes the landscape in the soft, warm glow of candles, a tender contrast to the electric dazzle of typical illuminations. This season’s candle art theme, “Kaleidoscope of Light ~ Everyone’s Happy Christmas,” comes to life with 10,000 candles depicting designs chosen from public submissions. The park’s Wonder World area, a haven of play with go-karts and mini steam locomotives, also features whimsical animal-themed illuminations and a captivating display of iridescent soap bubbles.
