The Shakujiigawa River evokes the spirit of the Edo period (1603-1867) with water wheels and traditional Japanese pavilions and lanterns. This event takes place along the Shakujiigawa, which is lined with rows of cherry blossom trees. Especially for the event, the trees will be lit up with full-color LEDs that slowly change color, bringing the beauty of the cherry blossoms to the next level. In addition, there will be lighting along the riverbed simulating the flow of water, creating a fantastical scene of nighttime cherry blossoms bathed in light.
Note: This event is sponsored in part by the Spring Illuminations Model Business Grant, a program run jointly by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau.
