Shinobazu Pond (Boating Pond)
11.17(Fri) ~ 11.19(Sun) After sunset
What if Shinobazu Pond were a canvas? Projected lights will turn it just into that. As time passes, the whimsies of the wind change the image so you can enjoy flickering reflections on the water’s surface. LED bulbs emit a faint, gentle luminescence around ornamentations, playing on the waters around the boat pond of Shinobazu. It is a seamless merging of the real world with another world projected on the waters.
