Lightopia or festival of lights is celebrated in Tokyo during the Christmas season. Extending from 20th December to 31st December, this ten-day festival is held in the Kokyo Gaien (Imperial Palace garden), and Marunouchi district of Tokyo.
Event Lightopia is a magnificent visual extravaganza. The illuminated Wadakura Bridge, the decorated Wadakura Fountain Park, and the light and flower display on the Naka-Dori and Gyoko-Dori Avenues are a visual spectacle.
