Japan's amazing Nabana no Sato winter light show
Millions of solar-powered light bulbs make this small botanical garden the hottest spot this winter
Dubbed the best annual light show in Japan, the Nabana no Sato botanical garden has sprouted 7 million LED lights this winter.
The theme of this year's display is nature. The tunnels of millions of LED lights encased in flower-shaped bulbs create amazing natural scenes, such as Mount Fuji at dawn and a rainbow across the sky.
A large area of the park is powered by solar panels.
Apart from the botanical garden, Nabana no Sato, on the southern island of Nagashima, is known for onsens and flower blossoms throughout the year. It's a part of the Nagashima Onsen resort area.
The show runs from mid-November to March 31.
