Omotesando Illuminations

5:00pm – 10:00pm
Free

A classy and impressive annual display, the Omote-sando illuminations are a light-lit walk of just over 1km on Jingumihashi Street. With over 900,000 lights wound around the trees, it’s got a definite winter-wonderland feel. The event is sponsored by Google Pixel so… that’s a nice blend of Christmas and consumerism we guess? The full display will be on until December 25th, but the ‘shrub lighting’ will remain until Januray 5th, with illuminations starting from sunset each day until 10pm.
