Midtown Christmas 2020

5:00pm – 11:00pm
Free

This year marks the 11th anniversary of Tokyo Midtown’s annual Christmas celebration.

The highlight of the event—as always—is the “Starlight Garden”.  The 2,000m² midtown park square (behind the complex) will be covered in 190,000 digitally controlled LEDs and balloons to create a space-like view.

The illumination is incredibly popular in the days leading up to Christmas (especially the 24th) with couples bringing a compulsory bottle of champers with them, so if you want to avoid the enormous crowds, you should go early. For the kids, keep an eye out for the Infinite Santa Display as well as the Christmas Tree formed of 1800 Santas (if an infinite amount is a bit overwhelming).
