Marunouchi Illumination 2023
The wintertime tradition is Marunouchi shimmers with a champagne-gold color.
The "Marunouchi Illumination" is a wintertime tradition in the Marunouchi area that has been held for more than 20 years since its first event. The event centers on Marunouchi Nakadori Avenue, the main street of the Marunouchi area, which is lined with popular brand-name stores along its 1.2-km stretch. Approximately 1.2 million LED bulbs will be attached to 360 street trees in the Marunouchi area, from the Tokyo Kotsu Kaikan in front of Yurakucho Station to Otemachi Naka-Dori Avenue, and all of them will light up simultaneously.
During the festival, the street and the entire town will be illuminated in a shimmering champagne-gold color, creating a truly magical atmosphere. This event is also environmentally friendly, and all the illuminations on Marunouchi Naka-Dori Avenue are powered by clean electricity generated from natural energy sources such as solar and wind power.
In 2023, part of "Gyoko-dori Avenue," which connects the Imperial Palace Outer Garden and Tokyo Station, will also be illuminated from November 28 to December 25, expanding the illuminated area. Additionally, during the Marunouchi Illumination period, part of the terrace at "Marunouchi House" on the 7th floor of the Shin-Marunouchi Building will feature illumination. All areas are equipped with heaters, providing a warm space to enjoy meals and more.
