Every year Shinrin Park, also known as the Musashi Kyuryo National Government Park, has three illumination displays. The first two are in Autumn and the third is in the December. The fall foliage light up is the middle illumination event which takes place annually after the Halloween illumination is finished.
The route from the central gate to the Urban Arboretum has light-up installations, some with art displays. The Urban Arboretum itself has beautiful illumination and the neighboring Kaide area has the main fall foliage lit up.
The illumination generally starts the middle week of November and runs to early December. This year the dates are from November 9th to December 1st. The display is switched on for the weekend of November 9th and then switched off during the weekdays. However, from the 16th, the illumination is on daily until December 1st.
Access to this event is through the central gate of the park. All other entrances will be closed at the usual time of 4.30 pm. Only the central gate stays open until 8.30 pm for the illumination.
