While Japan is not a Christian country, Christmas as an event has become very popular, and one of the most celebrated traditions is lighting up the cities with impressive, colorful seasonal illuminations.
Destination Asia Japan can arrange an evening tour with a local English-speaking guide to experience Tokyo’s twinkling winter lights. Guests visit the light exhibition regarded as one of the city’s most breath-taking: Ao No Doukutsu (Blue Cave) in Shibuya’s Yoyogi Park. The site is decorated with over 5,000 blue LED lights that stretch over 750 meters. The Zelkova serrata trees in Yoyogi Park are completely covered in these blue lights to create a magical light tunnel roughly 250 meters long.
As a final touch we take guests spectacular up to the observation deck at Tokyo City View on the 52nd floor of Roppongi Hills to admire the night-time glittering view of this spectacular city.
