This year, they’ve added a special Pokémon Illuminations section for all young and all Pokemon fans! The Pokémon illuminations area is filled with wild Pokémon brought to life in spectacular lights all across Sagamiko Resort.
To access the Pokemon illuminations, you’ll need to take the Rainbow Chairlift to the highest area of the park, sat atop a hill with a spectacular view of the lights below.
The Entrance and Pokemon Gondola
The entrance and the first section is called Pokemon Gondola, referring to the enormous Ferris wheel located in the center. (Unfortunately, the Ferris wheel wasn’t operating on the day we visited due to strong winds.)
Near the entrance is full of fan favorites, such as Pikachu and Evvie and different murals and structures, including the world’s biggest Pokeball!
The Pokemon Street is the 2nd of 3 sections that make up these illuminations. As you might imagine, scattered around the Pokemon Illuminations are tones of the little critters… and even some big ones! With all the cool photo spots, you’ll quickly become the envy of your social media followers.
Making your way down the street will lead you through the water zone where you’ll spot a friendly Squirtle, only to be immediately followed by an ambush by some pesky Gengars!
Pikachu’s Light Forest
At the end of the path you’ll find you self at the 3rd section, Pikachu’s Light Forest.
A 20ft tall Pikachu, which is the main attraction of the park is waiting for you.
Pokemon Illuminations are available for a limited time from November 14th, 2020 to April 4th, 2021.
