Each year, the 400m of Keyakizaka behind Roppongi Hills becomes one of the most popular couples’ strolling spots with brilliant blue LEDs decorating the trees and Tokyo Tower providing the perfect backdrop.
This year, the lighting scheme promises to be a little different. At two ‘secret’* locations the lights will change from their “snow and blue” theme to a “candle and red” colour. This will happen, from 5pm to 11pm, at five minutes to the hour or 25 minutes past the hour, depending on which spot you are at, and will last for 10 minutes. Then five minutes into the “candle and red” illumination, on the hour or half hour, a “hidden heart” will appear for five minutes before everything fades back into “snow and blue” for the next 50 minutes.
