From November 1st to January 31st, the Tokyo Skytree and the area around it turn the lights on for Christmas. Following a precise schedule, the Skytree will showcase special red, green and “champagne” colors.
From the street level, beautifully illuminated stairs will lead you to the Solamachi terrace. There you will find a “Christmas market”,where you can have a “European” drink, a huge Christmas tree and many couples. The lights on the terrace are very pretty and the atmosphere is nice.
It was my first time going so near the Skytree, and while I find it ugly regardless of its color, its size is quite impressive. I was pleasantly surprised with Solamachi, the shopping complex at the bottom of the tower.
I saw the green (or champagne ? I’m not too sure…) Skytree lighting, but if I have time I definitely want to go back and see the red lighting.
