Yomiuri land fireflies

get a numbered ticket first
Here for the summer firefly event held at "Seichi Park" on Fridays/Saturdays/Sundays in June - it is a 7-minute walk from the entrance of Yomiuri Land following the signs. Quite a few more fireflies than "Yuyake Koyake Fureai no Sato" near Takao but also a lot more people (including noisy children)! Don't expect to see fireflies everywhere though - some spotting effort required.

You have to get a numbered ticket for 300 yen per person (kids are free) then wait until your turn - they do tell you approximately how long the wait is though. We arrived just before 8 and had to wait for about an hour and a half. There are a few tents with Japanese quizzes/things to do, food trucks, and benches. There's also a Shakey's (pizza buffet at 1650 yen/person) by the entrance that opens until 9 pm (last order at 8:30 pm).

You can get tickets starting at 6 pm but entry is not until 7:30 pm. It took us about 30 minutes to slowly walk through the lanterns and fireflies area. The place was closing down when we left at 10 pm. It's a 25-minute walk from Odaykyu Line's "Yomiuri Land-Mae Station" - exit the station, walk left until you see Family Mart then make a right and walk straight the rest of the way.

Yomiuri Land illuminations
Yomiuri Land They also have winter illuminations here - 5 million lights! We went via Keio Line's "Yomiuri-Land Station" followed by a short cable car ride. The illuminations were nice and the attractions were also open at night then. It's basically a budget amusement park - fun in a tacky way. The highlight was a water slide where you get to go down in a giant tube in full winter wear! There was also a choreographed dance routine behind the water fountain show which was very cool.
