Yokohama gets festive with latest attraction

The Japanese town of Yokohama in the Kanagawa prefecture is preparing for the run up to Christmas with the launch of a new festive attraction.

Located at Cosmo World, a special illumination will be showcased between November 1st and February 29th from sunset to midnight in a spectacular event bound to wow audiences.

A centrally located Ferris wheel will offer guests a glimmering view of the town as they whish their way through the breezy Japanese air.

In addition, an enormous Christmas tree will be put in place from December 1st right up until the big day as 35,000 lights shine from its green-speckled branches.

Thrills seekers will also have the chance to take some twists and turns on the Vanish! rollercoaster as they dip and dive from a height of 25 metres.

Guests are advised that the nearest railway station to the attraction is Sakuragicho, where the Municipal subway and the JR Keihin Tohoku Negishi line will drop them off.

Alternatively, take the Minatomirai line to Minatomirai station and make your way towards an exciting holiday event this season.
