This year’s Tokyo Midtown lights are champagne gold in colour, creating a romantic atmosphere – especially in the Midtown Garden area. Here, you will also find a 3m-tall snow globe boasting a 4-minute light show synchronised to music themed around the four seasons. The installation is in place until December 25, but you’ll want to get there before December 12 to catch the special winter sequence featuring some impressive white bubbles. The light show takes place every 12 minutes.
There’s also a large Christmas tree in the garden area, which is decorated with colourful baubles and 25 presents that change colour one-by-one until Christmas day. Near the tree, you'll find a bush in the shape of the kanji character 木 (meaning 'tree'). It's even decked out with a Santa hat and scarf. When you touch the panel next to the installation, the Christmas tree boasts a short light show.
Don’t miss the ice skating rink that lights up in pink, yellow, green and blue at night.
