    Rainbow Fountain of Light

    As you head in further, you will come across the Rainbow Fountain of Light. It combines music, jets of water and beams of light. This powerful and captivating show will last for 5 minutes. There are two alternating performances which start every 20 minutes. One thing that you'll need is luck, since capturing a great picture will depend highly on if there's a breeze or not.

    Grabbing a bite to eat

    Star Light - Burger & Fries / Golden Ale Craft Beer

    Star Light - Burger & Fries / Golden Ale Craft Beer

    There is a selection of restaurants to choose from in this establishment, but the two we recommend are "Star Light" and "Nagomi". If you're looking for some Western style cuisine, the "Star Light" restaurant has you covered. I'm not exaggerating when I say that the Burger & Fries left me as a happy camper. The Golden Ale was just icing on the cake.

    Nagomi - Matcha Tiramisu

    Nagomi - Matcha Tiramisu

    On the other hand you have "Nagomi", a Japanese cuisine restaurant. They serve famous Japanese dishes, but we went for the "Matcha Tiramisu" so that we could end on a sweet note. Layered goodness in a box.
