Tokyo Station’s Marunouchi Building was built in 1914. Colorful lights decorate Tokyo Station, representing the nostalgic atmosphere of the Taisho Period, Japan’s Jazz Age.


Gyoko Dori, the street leading to Tokyo Station’s Marunouchi Building, will be illuminated with thousands of lights which will create a 3D structure. The street will be called “Roman no Michi” during the event period.


Sculptures of popular Disney characters are scheduled to be display from Monday, December 1st to Sunday, December 28th. Don’t miss the unique artworks!


The colorful illumination represents Japan’s Taisho Era, when Japanese popular culture flourished. This event can be a good opportunity for those who are interested in learning about the unique culture of Japan’s Jazz Age.
