Tokyo Midtown Illuminations

The Christmas Illuminations have been up for a while at Tokyo Midtown. Each place lit up for Christmas in Tokyo seems to have a different feel to it at night. The main color for Tokyo Midtown felt like it was blue.

The Christmas tree turns a purpley blue color.
It is hard to describe what these blue lights looked like in real life. This photo makes them look almost like a field of glow worms.

Taking photos of the illuminations is a great date course for couples at Midtown.
The main colors of these illuminations were blue and white. I think the white by itself looked a little bit too cold.

This couple were out enjoying the illuminations, taking photos, like many others.

There were plenty of mobile phones out getting closeup shots of the lights.

some nice photos being captured here on a compact digital camera.
The blue lights at ground level made the scenery appear like the ocean.
Down close, the blue lights look bigger looking back at the trees.

    Did you see the shooting star effects down by the main complex/tower itself? I thought that was pretty cool.

    • I was only out at the back of the complex in the park. I was a bit pressed for time so didn’t see the front. Looks like they put on quite a big show. Might go back tonight to see some at Roppongi Hills or Midtown again.

  2. Awesome photos! Did you shoot freehand or with a tripod?

    All the great colors combined make for a great combination. I wonder why the blue color is so prevalent in usage there?
