Shibuya Blue Cave Illumination

5:00pm – 10:00pm
Free

Held for the first time since 2019, the 2022 edition will see a huge Christmas card set up and projection mapping will commence.

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 color) stretching between Shibuya Koen Dori and Yoyogi Park (just south of Yoyogi Park Events Square).

It can get unexpectedly busy. In the past, 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.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
