The night view from Cinderella’s castle. Do you leave right after the Tokyo Disneyland Electric Parade and fireworks?

When I’m there, I always stay till the park closes. With less people around and a slightly cool night breeze, it’s quite enjoyable taking a night stroll around the park.

Thunder Gate

Two interesting facts I learnt visiting Kaminarimon in Asakusa recently.
