The most joyous and glittering season of the year in Tokyo sees thousands of Tokyoites and tourists find their way to bright and brilliant corners of town. In addition to the popular illuminations such as in Omotesando, Shibuya, Marunouchi and Tokyo Dome City, “ pink winter cherry blossoms ” along Meguro River and colorfully lit-up Japanese gardens are also attracting a lot of people. Blue, white, pink or champagne-gold lights are well set up against the night sky and will warm your heart. Great for walk after a dinner date or with the family. Be dazzled by the magic of light. There are a number of beautiful illumination shows in Tokyo other than the spots shown below. Many of them take place until January or February, 2017.
