Note: The 2023 installment of this event has already taken place.

Rikugien Gardens is one of the best places in Tokyo to see beautiful autumn leaves. Normally, the gardens are closed to the public in the evenings, but these special night viewings give visitors a rare chance to see a different side of Rikugien. Take in the leaves and illuminations after dark, along with projections on the wall of the storehouse.
The mixture of lighter leaves along with darker shades of gold and red reflected on the surface of the pond is stunning. Add some magic and color to the long autumn evenings with a visit to the gardens.
