Shaun the Sheep farm garden in Tawada, Japan gets an illuminations makeover for winter.
Aardman and Tohokushinsha Film have revealed that a new immersive illumination experience – the largest of its kind in the Kansai region of Japan – will open at the Rosa & Berry tourist attraction in Tawada.
Running from today (October 23) to Sunday March 28, 2021, the event is the world’s first illumination experience featuring Shaun the Sheep.
Rosa & Berry Illumination Fairy Fiesta – Lighting Performance on the Hill will cover an area of approximately 60,000 square metres. It will be decorated by around 800,000 LED lightbulbs of various colours, making it the largest in scale in the entire Kansai region.
The project has been launched as a long-term business plan for Rosa & Berry with the aim of helping to re-vitalise the local tourist industry and to establish the multi-attraction facility as a seasonal evening tourist destination.
“The inspired team at Rosa & Berry have produced another magical event that’s sure to bring joy to visitors throughout the winter season,” said Ngaio Harding-Hill, head of attractions and live experiences at Aardman.
Since its opening in March 2019, the Shaun the Sheep Farm Garden has seen approximately 240,000 annual visitors at the Tawada attraction.
