In normal years, 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. It’s unclear what will happen this year, but if you want to avoid potential crowds, you should go early.
Each year, Midtown erects a Christmas Tree. Usually it’s in the square adjacent to Gaien-Higashi Dori avenue, but this year it’s closer to the rest of the illuminations.
The highlight of previous years has been the “Starlight Garden”. The 2,000m² midtown park square (behind the complex) is covered with 190,000 digitally controlled LEDs and balloons to create a space-like view. Instead, for 2020/21 and again for 21/22, Midtown has erected the ice skating rink early.To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
