In the middle of the high-rise offices and swanky hotels of Shiodome, you can find the Caretta Shiodome mall, where food, shopping, and the arts go along with views of some of Tokyo’s biggest highlights. But for a certain period of the year, the best site it offers is best viewed on the ground: the Caretta Shiodome Winter Illumination. This is what some Christmas light-up junkies rank as the best illumination in a competitive field.
This year’s theme is Arabian Nights and two songs from the movie Aladdin will be performed from 5pm until 10pm on a rotating schedule.
