As the temperature drops, winter illuminations across Tokyo kick into gear. Perhaps the most extravagant of these is held at Tokyo Dome City, an entertainment complex in Bunkyo. The annual Dome City Winter Lights transforms the grounds of the adjacent amusement park into a dazzling, LED light show.
There’s no shortage of illuminations during the Christmas season, but this one offers an interesting take. This year’s theme is “sweets”, so prepare to feel like you’re inside the world’s most intensely festive bakery, but with rollercoasters.
The illumination begins every evening at 4 pm, from November 11 until February 18. Entry to the illumination is free.
