Welcome to "Midtown Christmas 2016"!

Between November 15 (Tue) and December 25 (Sun) 2016 Tokyo Midtown will play seasonal host to "Midtown Christmas 2016", our festive bonanza that is now in its tenth incredible year.

The "Starlight Garden" has become an annual fixture, the centerpiece of our illuminations that uses illusory blue lights to transport you out into the vastness of space. The Vision Dome returns, 6m in diameter and using full-color LEDs. This year, however, it also features four new searchlights, beaming 100m upward into the airspace above Roppongi to provide a dynamic depiction of the birth of the universe, the Big Bang itself. Prepare yourself to step into an illusory world, formed from light and sound and on an even larger scale than any previous year.

Centered in our illuminations, which have rapidly become a winter tradition, we are ready to welcome all of our visitors with a wide variety of exciting and festive events.

For Customers Using Stroller or Wheelchairs

All of our illuminations, including the popular "Starlight Garden 2016", are expected to be very crowded during the period of Dec 22 (Thu) to Dec 25 (Sun), meaning that restrictions on movement through Midtown will be put into effect.

For Customers Using Stroller(12/22-12/25)

For safety reasons, it will not be possible to use stroller on the illumination viewing route during the above period. Please either fold it up and keep it with you, or use the stroller yard.

For Customers in Wheelchairs(12/22-12/25)

It is extremely dangerous for customers in wheelchairs to line up to see the illuminations at busy times. We have priority areas across Midtown, so please ask any of our staff for assistance.

The large shooting star returns, after five years lost in space!

Do not miss the romantic moment, once every 12 minutes, when this shooting giant will blaze overhead.

Welcome Tree

This fantastic tree marks a great spot to meet up during the festive season, located in the Plaza Area that also marks the starting point for the illuminations.
The word "Welcome" written in 30 of the most spoken languages in the world, including English, Chinese, Arabic and Thai will quite literally "welcome" every visitor to Tokyo Midtown.
Meanwhile, the symbolic "Welcome Clock" not only tells the time but also plays music on every hour!
This festive serenade is particularly special at 17:00, when Christmas songs will ring out to signify the switching on of the illuminations.
