Originally a Nakameguro event from way back in 2014, the Blue Cave is now a Shibuya highlight each winter. This year’s 800m display will feature around 600,000 LEDs (guess what colour) stretching between Shibuya Koen Dori and Yoyogi Park.

On the final night the illuminations will remain on until 5am on January 1st.
