A Roppongi Hills Christmas Light Display

Christmas is not even a national holiday in Japan and there is no tradition of gift exchanges but the Japanese do love a good dose of western Christmas music and light displays.  One of the best Christmas light displays, or illuminations as they are called in Japan, takes place in and around the ultra modern Roppongi Hills complex in Tokyo.

Along Roppongi Keyakizaka dori (street) you will find an avenue of trees awash in blue lights, the 66 Plaza has chosen a cheerful red and orange theme and countless presents line the Mori courtyard and the Museum Cone area.  Illuminations are open daily from 5PM through 11PM and are free to enjoy.

The best view of all comes from the top of the Mori Building which offers Tokyo City Views from 270 Meters above ground while surrounded by twinkling lights.  Visit the 52nd Floor to take in a 5 meter tall Casablanca Christmas Tree and live musical performaces from mid- December.
