Tokyo Midtown Christmas
Immerse yourself in the festive spirit at Tokyo Midtown Christmas, one of the dazzling Tokyo events in December.
Champagne Gold Atmosphere
This year, Tokyo Midtown has set the festive mood with champagne gold colored lights for its holiday lighting. The illuminations create a stunningly romantic atmosphere, particularly in the Midtown Garden. Each day from 5 pm to 11 pm, visitors can enjoy these exquisite displays until December 25th.
Further enhancing the golden glow is a three-meter-tall snow globe showcasing a short, colorful light show synchronized to music every six minutes. Visitors will want to experience this special attraction before December 14th, after which the winter sequence featuring impressive white bubbles will no longer be in play.
Festive Christmas Tree
Nestled within the garden area is a large Christmas tree adorned with colorful baubles and decorations shaped like party crackers. Near this festive centerpiece, a bush is also sculpted into the kanji character 木 (meaning ‘tree’), complete with a Santa hat and scarf. An interactive feature of this installation allows visitors to activate a mini light show via a touch panel located next to it.
Ice Skating Rink
Tokyo Midtown’s lineup of holiday activities includes its largest outdoor ice skating rink within the expansive Grass Square. The rink remains open for both kids and adults to enjoy during day and night hours. The night skating experience promises a magical ambiance courtesy of twinkling lights adorning the area. Rental facilities for shoes, gloves, and sleds are available on-site alongside a café ticket included with the admission fee.
Tokyo’s Largest Outdoor Ice Skating Rink Returns To MIDTOWN CHRISTMAS
Dubbed ‘MIDTOWN ICE RINK,’ this outdoor feature ranks among Tokyo’s largest ice-skating rinks. Accompanied by beautiful illuminations and serene music performances, it contributes significantly to the event’s overall appeal.
Adding a whimsical feel to this wintery celebration is an immersive visual display titled ‘CHRISTMAS STORY LIGHTS.’ It comprises high-definition projections complemented by nearly 300 lighting fixtures scattered throughout Tokyo Midtown’s premises.
Best Time To Visit Tokyo Midtown
While popularity peaks especially on December 24th as couples throng the venue with champagne bottles, early visits guarantee lesser crowds and enhanced enjoyment of all that ‘MIDTOWN CHRISTMAS’ has to offer.
The immersive ‘Party Popper’ tree changes colors amidst an array of smoke and bubbles, creating an enchanting spectacle next to the Midtown Ice Rink. Onlookers can admire glowing golden trees mixed in with pop art Christmas trees fashioned in party cracker style.
