Marunouchi Illumination  is an annual illumination held mainly along Marunouchi Naka-dori Avenue in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo.

Approximately 230 trees along Marunouchi Naka-dori Avenue, which runs north-south between Yurakucho, Marunouchi and Otemachi, are illuminated with approximately 1,010,000 LED bulbs shining in Marunouchi’s original color of “champagne gold,” creating a path of light. The “Champagne Gold” LED bulbs are the original color of Marunouchi.

These “champagne gold” LED bulbs, which were first used in 2011, shine brighter than conventional LED bulbs while consuming about 65% less electricity.

From Marunouchi Naka-dori Avenue, you can also enjoy the grand opening on October 1 of the preserved and restored Tokyo Station, Marunouchi Station Building. In addition to Marunouchi Nakadori Avenue, the Tokyo Building TOKIA and Marunouchi Oazo are also illuminated, so don’t forget to check them out.

Come and blend in with the majestic and remarkably beautiful world of eco-illumination, a world unlike any other. The illumination is held from October 1st to mid-February from 17:00 to 23:00 (until 24:00 in December).
