Marunouchi Illumination 2018-2019
8 November 2018 – 17 February 2019
Marunouchi Nakadori Street and around Tokyo Station
Every winter, Marunouchi area, on the west side of Tokyo Station, lights up elegantly in golden shades of sparkling wine. Over the years, it has become one of the major winter lights attractions in Tokyo.
The 17th edition of the event for this season will be organized again in an eco-conscious manner. More LED bulbs of the latest type will be added to replace the older ones to reduce the total energy consumption. All the energy used to light up the main street comes from solar and wind power.
