Shinjuku Hikari 2020

5:00pm – 10:00pm
Free

A fairly small illumination display that’s worth a look if you happen to be in the area. Every evening for a month, Shinjuku Central Park is being lit up with thousands of LED lights, glowing beasties, and other types of installations.

There are three core events happening as part of Shinjuku Hikari 2020:

  • Twinkle Park, which is the main attraction, lighting up the park’s trees, shrubbery and stairs (complete with English-language messages encouraging social distancing) until January 17
  • Crystal Story, which uses fancy projection technology and stuff to take you into a fantasy realm in the middle of the park, until December 27
  • Candle Night, which is a peaceful event featuring 3 000 candles, taking place on December 25 and 26
