When: 05/05/16: 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Where: Odawara Castle, 6-1 Jonai
Ever since Disneyland and Universal Studios started projecting animated visuals on to their castles at night, the trend has taken Japan by storm – if you haven’t seen a castle lit up by projections, this is a great chance for Tokyoites and Kanagawans. Odawara Castle, about an hour south of downtown Tokyo, is a traditional, white-painted testament to the days of the shogun that will be getting a little more colorful for the occasion.
Delegate one of your days off during Golden Week to check out the area, as there is plenty of hiking and onsen-hopping to do! Top off the evening by lying in the park surrounding the castle. The show is expected to repeat until roughly 10 pm that evening, giving you ample time to catch a train back north.
