Illumination Spots in Tokyo: The East Garden of the Imperial Palace, 30th Nov 2019

East Gardens of the Imperial Palace

Thanks to all the guests for walking and talking with us on 30th November! We welcomed 12 guests from US, Philippine, Israel, German, and Sweden.

The Imperial East Garden area is crowed with people visiting this area to look the Daijokyu ceremonial building, but guests enjoyed walking and learned about Japanese history.

In today’s report, I’d like to introduce the illumination spots of this year in Tokyo that I couldn’t answer well to the tour guest a few weeks before.

(1) Shibuya Park Street to Yoyogi Keyaki Street:
Motif of this illumination spot is Blue Color. The trees on the street are decorated with 600,000 blue LEDs. JR Shibuya or Harajuku station is best to come.
(2) Ebisu Garden Place:
Main object of this spot is the Baccarat Chandelier illumination, which height is 5m and width is 3m. JR Ebisu station is best.
(3) Roppongi Mid Town:
Theme of this spot is Cosmic Space. Wide lawn area beside the Roppongi Mid Town building is decorated with illumination. Roppongi Metro station is best.
(4) Marunouchi Naka Street :
Trees beside the Naka Street are decorated with “Champagne Gold Color” LEDs.
This was my answer to the guest, because this illumination spot is closest to our tour course.

Other areas in Tokyo are also popular for illumination spots, such as Tokyo Sky Tree Town, Riverside of Meguro River, the south area of JR Shinjuku station, and so on.
Getting close the winter solstice day on 22nd Dec. sunset time gets earlier. Please enjoy night time with illumination in Tokyo after our tour!
