Marunouchi Illumination 2020

3:00pm – 11:00pm
Free

Each year from late autumn until mid-February, the trees along the Marunouchi area’s Naka Dori are strewn with fairy lights to give the are an extra special winter feel.

In addition to lighting up the naked branches, there are typically temporary illuminated sculptures on the sidewalks. Naka Dori begins near Tokyo Station and continues for about 500 meters to the vicinity of the Peninsula Hotel.

Note that in the month of December the illuminations will run until midnight but revert to the 11 pm switch-off again in January.

    Kawaii Flea Market

    Cancelled

    Taking place either in Nakano or Ikebukuro, this small flea market is punted at the ladies, though, in our experience, can be a good time for all genders. Check it out for previously-loved clothing, crafts, antiques and all sorts of […]
