5 Recommended Spots for Christmas Date in Tokyo!

Showa Kinen Park

This is where you can enjoy the dynamic Christmas illuminations that cover an area of 39 Tokyo Domes! At Showa Kinen Park, a champagne tower stacked with about 15,000 glasses is one of the most beautiful illuminations, with a new theme every year.

Walking through the sparkling park together will be your best romantic moment. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, fireworks are set off, so you can enjoy the twinkling lights on the ground and the fireworks blooming in the winter sky at the same time.

Omotesando Hills

Omotesando is a mecca for Christmas illumination. Omotesando Hills is a stylish and romantic place where you can walk along a 400-meter-long street lined with up-lighted trees and a grand staircase with a sparkling Christmas tree.

The atrium is lined with popular stores and restaurants, where you can choose gifts, have dinner, and enjoy your date. Musical performances such as harps and violins will make a wonderful Christmas atmosphere.

Yebisu Garden Place

This is the place to enjoy Christmas in Ebisu, a town for adults! The largest chandelier ever made by the top crystal brand Baccarat will shine in the Yebisu Garden Place Center Plaza.

The marchés (stalls), which are open only during the Christmas season, are just like European markets. It's a good idea to enjoy a cheerful Christmas date at the marché or beer station. The beautiful Western-style French restaurant "Joel Robuchon" in the back of the building is the perfect spot to spend a luxurious and romantic time with your loved one.

Yomiuri Land

Christmas at Yomiuri Land is a time to enjoy the illumination called the "Jewel Illumination". Produced by world-renowned lighting designer Mikiko Ishii, the dreamy lights are perfect for an amusement park Christmas date!

For young couples and group dates, I recommend using the Night Pass, which allows unlimited rides on attractions in the evening. You can enjoy a sparkling and active Christmas date at the jewel box-like amusement park, riding many Ferris wheels and roller coasters with spectacular views.

Marunouchi Illumination

The 1.2 kilometers of trees along Marunouchi Naka-dori Avenue, which connects Yurakucho and Otemachi, glow champagne gold in the Marunouchi Illumination, a winter tradition in Tokyo. The area is filled with luxury brand boutiques and restaurants, making it the perfect spot for a chic and elegant date for adults.

Tokyo Station, with its beautiful red bricks, will be specially lit up during the Christmas season, creating a beautiful space where the station building and the surrounding buildings come together! It is also fun to walk around the Christmas market, with its cute huts (stalls) that resemble German mountain huts.

Address:  Marunouchi Naka-dori

Business hours:  17:00 - 23:00  (until 24:00 in December)

As Christmas approaches and the lights come on, the city of Tokyo enters the season of dreaming. Why don't you invite your favorite person and go out to the city with all its glittering lights? The illumination is sure to bring a smile to your face and make you both happy.
