Perhaps not surprisingly in a land ruled by middle-aged and elderly blokes and the fax still a crucial communication tool, mightily impressive dinosaurs have taken over a part of Japan not far from Tokyo.
And despite being equipped with apparently razor-sharp fangs, the dinosaurs in question are actually toothless.
They’re part of an amazing display at the Izu Granpal Amusement Park.
The park is located in Izukogen, a town about 100 km southwest of central Tokyo.
And the dinosaurs are part of an illumination display presented with a Cool Japan Matching Award.
Both the dinosaurs and the illumination display were absolutely fabulous!
In clear weather, it’s also possible to ride a flying fox (zipline) over the illumination display on the park.
Getting to the park takes a couple of hours by train, but highly worthwhile, with plenty more to see in the Izukogen area, a thriving little town gaining wider exposure with the increase in inbound tourism over the past handful of years.
