Tokyo Midtown "MIDTOWN CHRISTMAS 2021"
At Tokyo Midtown, "MIDTOWN CHRISTMAS 2021" will be held from November 18th to December 25th. With "VIVD" as its concept this year, you can enjoy the colorful and emotional light effects.
In "MIDTOWN WINTER LIGHTS" at the Midtown Garden and Plaza First Floor, the fantastic illumination lights up the outdoor space. 150 trees inside the park change into a "walkway of light."
This year, the light and dark dimming of the lights were added. It looks as if the trees resonate together in a dynamic way, which happens every hour.
Two programs are located in the walkway. One of them, "SNOW LIGHT GLOBE" is a huge, dynamic snowdome with a height of 3 meters and a diameter of 4.5 meters.
The dome, which expresses the four seasons with light and color, shines like a treasure box. This year, the scale of the surrounding illumination was enlarged and creates a powered-up fantasy-like atmosphere.
The other spot, "The Tree of Presents," is VIVID as well. This strange tree, which fruits presents, lights up one present box every day from December 1st. The tree is a countdown to Christmas day.
In the lawn square in the Midtown Garden, the "MITSUI FUDOSAN ICE RINK" outdoor skating rink is open.
On the other hand, "Color Jungle" by SPREAD, a creative unit featuring "color and concept," has appeared in the "Galleria Installation" held inside the building.
You can also find the Santa Tree inside the building, with 1800 Santa Claus ornaments. Here, a "VIVID" colored Santa Claus is hidden inside numerous Santa Claus ornaments.
Tokyo Midtown's "MIDTOWN CHRISTMAS 2021." There are restaurants that serve Christmas menus and allow you to view the illumination. Why not immerse yourself in this fantastic world in any way you like.

In ARK Hills, from November 19th to December 25th, "ARK HILLS CHRISTMAS 2021" was held. This year, the event was themed "Connection with the Forest," and an illumination that uses the thinned cedar trees of Hinohara Village, Tokyo.
You can feel warmth of the trees from the environmental-friendly illumination. Not only thinned wood but the cedar trees used last year were reused in the tree ornaments and the benches. Not only does it make you think it's beautiful, but it also makes you think of the importance of nature and resources.
