Now in its 35th year, the annual Miyagase Christmas event comes filled with plenty of seasonal color. The centerpiece of the event is a massive native fir tree at the Miyagase Lakeside Park, which towers over 30 meters in height and is decorated with approximately 10,000 sparkling lights.
Each Saturday during the event there will also be fireworks shows running for about 5 minutes, which start from 6 pm.
Admission to the event is free of charge.
The Lake Miyagase area is around 20 minutes from the Sagamihara IC on the Ken-O Expressway, or around 40 minutes from the Sagamiko IC on the Chuo Expressway. On-site parking is available for over 300 vehicles.
For those visiting via public transport, buses are available from the Odakyu Hon-Atsugi Station's South Exit. Take the Kanagawa Chuo Kotsu Bus bound for Miyagase, and the travel time to the venue is about an hour.
