The Meguro River minna-no-illumination 2019
The cherry trees on the banks of the Meguro River, in the neighbourhood of Gotanda and Osaki, will be lit up with LEDs in shades of sakura blossoms.
◆ Participatory lighting festival
The Meguro River illumination “for (or by) everyone” is a free, winter lighting event organized in a green manner with local initiation. The power is 100 per cent generated by the recycled waste cooking oil collected from locals.
Together with Shinagawa City, some 410,000 LEDs in cherry-blossom shades light up the trees for a total length of about 2.2 km along the Meguro River.
◆ “Cherry-blossom” viewing Igloos
For a fun way of winter “cherry-blossom” viewing, pop-up Igloos will be set up at Gotanda Fureai Mizube Hiroba, one of the main venues.
【Dates】16 -25 December (t.b.c.)
