Winter light display at 'German Village' in Chiba gets underway

SODEGAURA, Chiba -- The annual winter light display at the "Country Farm Tokyo German Village" kicked off here on Nov. 1, and will continue shining brightly in the evenings until April 8, 2018.

Consisting of about 3 million light bulbs in total -- roughly 500,000 more than last year -- this year's display at the popular tourist attraction is based on a "fairy tale" theme.

Visitors to the theme park can enjoy a fantastical nursery-tale themed backdrop, in which multicolored lights are spread across vast expanses of grass. The event has already attracted numerous couples and families, who have been keenly taking photographs of the spectacular lighting.
