The illumination of Akasaka Sacas in Minato-ku, Tokyo is held in Akasaka Sacas, a new cultural district named after the hilly Akasaka area. During the Christmas season, the area from Akasaka Biz Tower to Akasaka Sacas Square is decorated with bright colors under the name of “White Sacas”.

The symbol of the “Akasaka Sacas Illumination” is the Sakasport, adjacent to one of the largest skating rinks in Tokyo! It is a lactis tree, and the giant tree is impressive when covered with lights.

Above the main street, Nakadori Avenue, is the “illumination in the sky,”. While walking or even skating you can get into the Christmas spirit.
