Across the street from Tokyo Station is the Shin-Marunouchi Building and also the other Marunouchi Building.
The region around Tokyo Station is known as the Marunouchi area where other buildings such as the Brick Square, Tokyo Building Tokia, Iiyo! and Marunouchi Oazo also exists.
But for Christmas celebrations, I want to focus on the Marunouchi and Shin-Marunouchi buildings. One of my favorite shopping locations.
From 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., on the third floor of the Shin-Marunouchi building is the blooming arch and is the easiest accessible, because there is no waiting after 6 p.m. for anything to happen. It’s already setup for people to go and take photos.
From 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. is the Blooming Anniversary Tree which was designed by famous Danishi florist, Nicolai Bergmann (Nicolai Bergmann Flowers & Design), who introduced a unique floral style to Japan mixing European design with Scandinavian style and Japanese sensitivity.
And possibly the biggest attraction is the illuminated lights as part of the Marunouchi Illumination 2017 which started on November 9th and lasts through February 18th of next year.
And on Christmas Eve, in front of Tokyo Station, the Tokyo Michi Terrace 2017 will begin and will last for five days (December 28th is the last day).
If you happen to be in the Marunouchi area or just at Tokyo Station after 6 pm, just walk across the street and check out Christmas in Marunouchi Bright Christmas 2017!
