Please note the Toshimaen has now permanently closed and the Las Vegas Illumination is no longer displayed.

Toshimaen was a much beloved theme park in Tokyo which has now closed with the new Harry Potter Theme Park opening on the site in 2023.

Toshimaen “Las Vegas Illumination” was an illumination held at Toshimaen, an amusement park in Mukouyama, Nerima-ku, Tokyo, from November 23, 2012 to April 7, 2013 on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays.

The illumination, named Las Vegas Illumination after Las Vegas in the U.S.,  illuminated the entire park with approximately 750,000 light bulbs.

The illumination was divided into seven areas for each theme, each with its own unique presentation.

In the active area, the illumination changed as if dancing to music, making it a fun and exciting illumination.

The best part of the park were the illumination rides. Visitors could enjoy blending themselves into the illumination on various rides lit up with lights.

From the nearest station, it is a one-minute walk from Toshimaen Station on the Seibu Ikebukuro Line or a two-minute walk from Toshimaen Station on the Toei Oedo Line. Parking for 1,000 cars is available at 200 yen per 30 minutes or 1,500 yen per day.
