Time Out says

Dubbed Ao no Dokutsu, meaning blue cavern, this breathtaking illumination was a huge hit when it made its debut along the Meguro River back in 2014. The now annual event made a comeback in Shibuya a couple of years ago, where it will again bathe the tree-lined walkway leading to Yoyogi Park in a fantastical blue glow this holiday season until Christmas Day.

Stretched out for 800 metres along Koen-dori, this fantastical illumination is made up of around 770,000 blue LEDs. The lights are also reflected off the ground to create an immersive experience. This year, the site is also hosting a Christmas Market of around 20 stalls offering festive meals and treats until 9pm.

The illuminations take place daily between 3pm and 10pm.
