Featuring 1.6 million lights, this impressive illumination event holds a Guinness World Record for being the “Largest Image Made of LED Lights.” Held at APA Hotel in Myoko, Niigata Prefecture, the event is now in its third year and takes over part of the resort’s 27-hole golf course, attracting nearly 300,000 visitors. The course, which is divided up into different themed sections, was created by noted illumination designer Motoo Marumaru, and takes about 90 to 120 minutes to walk through. It features a light tunnel, water projections of the Wind God and Thunder God, and a two massive dragons to end off the display.
