Winter Illumination in Tokyo 2016

Each year when Halloween ends, people here are ready to welcome the coming of winter. What is in your mind when saying winter in Japan? Maybe skiing, new year count down or fukubukuro (lucky bag) hunting? Besides these, illuminations can also be listed as a symbol of winter in Japan. Winter limited illumination events usually start from the beginning of November and some end after Valentine's Day in February. These colorful lights bright up the whole city and delight the people in the dark. Here are some famous illumination events held in Tokyo this year.
