After a lot of careful research of Christmas events in Tokyo this year, below are some of our nice picks which we would like to share with all our lovely readers!

  1. The amazing light down story of Tokyo tower

Do you know the legend about the lights getting turned off at Tokyo Tower?
“Couples who saw the moment of the lights being turned off together, will find eternal happiness.”
This year from Friday 1st to Monday 25th December, you could enjoy the lighting show with beautiful lights and music.”
Fall in love with the lights going down…While this event is on, the lights of Tokyo Tower will be turned off temporarily each evening at 7:30 p.m, and pink hearts will appear on the Main Observatory until 24:00 midnight. It is a very rare opportunity to watch the light-off moment so don’t miss the chance!



This year, the famous outside stairway that extends from the FootTown rooftop to the Main Observatory with approximately 600 steps will also be decorated with LED lights in the shape of hearts and snow crystals. This “outside stairway of hearts” will be lit up each day from 5:00 p.m. until midnight!
