It is not like a large scale illumination in the city, but it is a small scale illumination of fruits and Christmas lights, just like the Fruit and Flower Park.
I did not have children when I visited there, but it was not so crowded, so I think it is easy to enjoy with children.
In fact, there were many people with their children.
