Christmas Fantasy 2006 success at Okinawa Children’s Land

Date Posted: 2006-12-22

Starting last weekend, Christmas Fantasy was held in Okinawa Kodomo-no Kuni (Children’s Land) zoo pasrk in Okinawa-city. Although the weather was unfavorable for a festival, surprisingly large crowd of people attended the event.

At the venue, there were impressive illumination displays featuring millions of light bulbs attracting visitors. On the stage, people enjoyed watching salsa and street performances by Latin Soul and Teeda Family. Mami & Coche Canela presented a Christmas concert to the enthusiastic audience.

Yoshinori Morimoto, a resident of Uruma-city, attended the Christmas Fantasy with his girlfriend. “I came here last year too. I like this event very much,” he said.

“On this season, you see illumination displays in other places in Okinawa. But here, you enjoy not only the displays but also a lot of other things such as the laser shows as well as dance performances. And unlike last year, I’m here with my lovely girl friend this time. The fantasy is a good Christmas gift to her. “

The event continues from this Friday through Wednesday, Dec. 27. It is open every day from 4 to 10 p.m.

Organizers are looking for plenty of people to attend every day, as one promoter explains, “We expect that more visitors will attend than last week because public schools end semester this weekend and students have their winter break

Organizers highly recommend that visitors use additional parking lots located in Okinawa City Office and Awase Seaport as the parking at the Okinawa Zoo Park is rather limited. A shuttle bus will run continuously between the additional parking and the zoo during the event.

Tickets cost \1,700 for adults, children from four years old to junior high school students are \1,000 in advance; \2,000 & \1,200 respectively at the gate
