Blue Cave SHIBUYA (shibuya ao-no-dokutsu)
30 November – 31 December 2018
The Blue Cave illumination is coming back to Shibuya for the winter season 2018. An enchanted world of blue will unfold in the town of Shibuya, enticing you to wander into a fantastic “cave” of blue lights.
What is the Blue Cave?
The “Blue Cave” is a winter lights festival, which was held for the first time in 2014, along the Meguro River. The famous cherry trees along the river bank were lit up in blue, as though like a fantastic tunnel of illumination. The event became instantly and explosively popular.
In 2016 the venue was moved to Shibuya, attracting crowds of people, culminating in some 2.67 million visitors in the following year 2017. The Blue Cave event was also held at Sapporo and Osaka.
Blue Cave SHIBUYA 2018
For the 2018 edition, the Blue Cave SHIBUYA will take place along Shibuya Koen-dori Street, which starts around Shibuya Marui and Shibuya MODI; and along Yoyogi-koen Keyaki-namiki Street on the south of Yoyogi Park.
The trees along these streets will be lit up to unfold a spectacular landscape of sparkling blue lights. Several kinds of moving waves and blinking lights will create a magic of stunningly beautiful blue illumination.
To reach the Blue Cave, you may walk either from
– Shibuya Station, up along the gentle sloping Shibuya Koen-dori; or
– the other way round, from around Yoyogi Park and Harajuku where many pop-up stalls will open.
