Each year, the 400m of Keyakizaka Street 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.
In 2022, there will be around 800,000 LED lights, and for the first time in three years, Mohri Garden will be lit up (from Nov. 18) and the Christmas Market will return. There will be two different types of Christmas trees, a reflective one along the West Walk and a Cartier-inspired tree at Roku-Roku Plaza.
The illuminations begin in mid-November and will run until December 25, shining from around 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. each night.
Where is it?
If you are looking to take the iconic photo of Tokyo Tower and the row of lights, the best spot — without causing a disturbance in the middle of Keyakizaka Street — is just past O-Yane Plaza where the Christmas Market is held. If in doubt, just gravitate towards the mass of people.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
