Shibuya Blue Cave Winter Illumination
This Winter Illumination got its start in the Nakameguro area of Tokyo in 2014. In 2016, it moved to its current location of Shibuya. Today, it’s one of the most popular and visited winter illumination events in Tokyo. Last year saw over 2 million visitors in the month of December.
This year the 800 meter (2,624 feet) long display features around 600,000 Blue LEDs stretching between Shibuya Koen Dori and Yoyogi Park. The trees close proximity creates the effect of walking through a blue cave!
It is amazing! You have to see it in person to get the full effect (and quite a challenge to photograph).
