That sounds good for everyone! It should be a good stop for JR pass holder.
I took a day off and went to Gotembe Kogen Resort.
a big Japanese langtan welcome you.
Some small langtan was displayed around a tree that makes Japanese atmosphere.
Rainbow is bridging on block wall.
Full of LED was displayed on a chapel. Good place for someone who wants to let your lover think about marriage.
Trees of cherry blossom was decorated by LED. It’s just like walking in milky way.
You will find some stage for selfie and need to set up your camera neatly, otherwise the photo will be tended like mine.
There’s a lot of cute villa.
There is also water show held at where is through the christmas lights. I have seen it in winter that was freezing by the splash. Summer is better to see it I guess.
Gotemba kogen resort is really good for couples and families. We highly recommend it.
Have a nice travel !!
