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. Creating a cave with trees, it really is a pretty magical sight, although it gets expectedly busy. Last year around 2 million visitors were counted in a single month, so embrace the crowds (not literally, we’re all about personal space) and consider it part of the experience.
On the final night the illuminations will remain on until 5am on January 1st.To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
