Christmas Events in Tokyo 2021

After having fewer festive events last year, it seems like Tokyo is back in full power. Here are only a few picks of the best Christmas events in Tokyo 2021.

We know it is hard to believe, but it has been 20 years since the first Harry Potter movie was released. To commemorate this historical event, Marunouchi Bright Christmas comes up with a themed Christmas illumination. If you have enough time to see just one installation, check out Marunouchi Building which features Hogwarts Magic Tree. Other notable installations can be found at Tokyo Torch Park, Marunouchi AOZO, and Marunouchi Brick Square. If you want to get even more into Harry Potter and Christmas mood, treat yourself to a warm drink and cake from the HP menu at Tully’s Coffee.
