In the Christmas season, the city of Tokyo is brilliantly illuminated by Christmas lights (called illuminations). There are romantic settings, lights shows, and various other beautiful styles you have to see! Here are some of the best Christmas lights spots in Tokyo not to miss!
The LEDs on the trees of Keyakizaka Street right behind Roppongi Hills Arena are shining like stars in a galaxy. Looking down from the top of a pedestrian bridge close by, you can see the orange glowing Tokyo Tower emerging from the sea of lights. If you visit Tokyo in winter, don’t miss it!
Period: Currently being held until December 25, 2019

All Disney fans gather to watch the Christmas lights show of Caretta Shiodome. This year’s theme is “Arabian Night”. The trees in the square light up and change color to the beats of the movie soudtrack from “Aladdin”. Walking around the square and taking photos is a lot of fun. This is a great spot especially when travelling with children.
With this variety of Christmas lights waiting for you, you might even wish that the sun goes down quicker! Have fun and please enjo Tokyo’s festive season!
