Stardust Fantasia: ‘Love Miracle Illuminations’

The Kanucha Resort, one of the largest resorts in the prefecture, will be lit up with over 1 million sparkling lights, creating a very romantic ambience for three-and-a-half months this winter following the official lighting ceremony on Nov. 1.

During the event, visitors can enjoy beautiful illuminations all around them as soon as they enter the hotel premises. Beyond the reception area the star-studded “Hoshi no Ongakutai” illumination welcomes guests. The poolside garden serves as the centerpiece for the illuminations and is lit up by the “Mother Tree,” the “Open Heart,” the “Clock Tower” and the “Pier of the Stars.” Viewing the illuminations from the bar on the second floor or from the poolside restaurant is sure to provide that exciting holiday feeling.

Recommended for anniversaries and other celebrations is the personal turning on of the lights at sunset (30,000 yen, advance reservations required). Only one couple has this opportunity each day. Why not enjoy a memorable evening by switching on the 1 million lights of the Kanucha Resort’s illuminations?
