I know it seems like all I do these days is frant about looking at stuff lit up at night, but there’s been a sudden rash of illuminations events in & around Tokyo lately, and they’ve all been worth staying up way past bedtime for!
Last time I went to the Yokohama Smart Illuminations, you may remember that I blatted on and on about it, like was the best thing since electric ramen. Well, this year it’s even better.
But the video below is of my absolute favorite thing. The glass whatsits that the laser bounces off of are set up in different ways each night, but the bonus excellence is that the colors and patterns are controlled by a sort of rattle with a sensor in it, and you can take a turn shaking it at the laser, and feel like The Force is strong with you.
