Nabana no Sato : Amazing Light Tunnel Made of Millions of LEDs in Japan

The Japanese once again prove that they know how to leave us in awe: a couple of days ago a spectacular 7 million light installation was opened in the Nabana no Sato botanical garden on the island of Nagashima in Kuwana.

What is justly called “the best light show in the country”, welcomes the visitors through the entry of a light-lit tunnel, where every tiny LED is enclosed into a botanically inspired light bulb. With the theme of this year’s project being “The Great Nature”, the gardens offer such installations as rainbows, auroras borealis and even a sunrise by the Mt. Fuji. A theme park usually focusing on flowers, will hold this Winter Illumination project till the end of March.

A Democratic Missouri state senator representing parts of Ferguson who tweeted multiple times “fuck you,” at Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon defended her choice of words on Fox News Monday saying she did so because she was tear-gassed for three days.

“The reason why I used profane language is because he has allowed us to get tear-gassed for three days,” Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal said. “I am one of his senators in his party and he was at the state fair enjoying a country concert while we were getting teargassed and shot at. And yes, anyone who’s going to get teargassed deserves to say a few ‘F’ bombs here and there.”

“I represent my constituents, not Gov. Nixon,” the senator said. “He has been absent from the minority community his entire career and only comes before us when it is politically expedient for him. Or when he’s running for office, and because he has been outside of this community…let me tell you this, and this is important for your audience to know. He has still yet to come to ground zero. Yet to come to ground zero. He’s been in Florissant, he’s been in Normandy, but he has not spoken to the victims of the crisis we are dealing with and that is why I have called him a coward.”
