In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
This year's theme is "Animals from the Five Continents." The main venue, Motofuchie Park, will be filled with light displays of animals from around the world. Featuring stunning displays depicting various storybook motifs, it's the perfect event for making lasting memories with friends and loved ones. There are opportunities for you to take some truly one-of-a-kind pictures, such as this year's light-covered carriage. There's also a light show that makes use of eight 20-meter trees encased in lights—a sight that can't be seen anywhere else in Japan! Additionally, the Japanese zelkova trees lining the main street between Takenotsuka Station and Motofuchie Park are covered in strings of champagne gold lights. On the first day of the festival, Saturday, December 1, there will be a special lighting ceremony. Additionally, on Sunday, December 2, there will be various displays and stage performances.
