One acceptable excuse to wear sunglasses at night? Seven million blazing bulbs of holiday cheer.

Every year Nabana no Sato, a theme park in Kuwana, Japan, decks its halls with a glittering array of LED lights. The annual installation, called “Winter Illumination,” attracts visitors from around the world.

Out of the 7 million bulbs that make up the luminous wonderland, a majority go into crafting the park’s most popular attractions, the Tunnel of Light and Mt. Fuji.

The Tunnel of Light delivers on its name with a shimmery, sensory overload that cocoons you from head to toe.

Mt. Fuji, while less immersive, is equally impressive, depicting the Japanese landmark’s soothing transition through the seasons.

It’s a spectacle that should leave any bedazzled holiday house flickering with awe.
