Please note in advance that information on the light up calendar may be changed without notice due to circumstances.
This is the standard light-up illuminating Tokyo Tower with 180 lights that make it stand out.
There are two different patterns, the "Summer Version" and the "Winter Version," and silver lights called "metal-halide lamps" are used in the summer. The distinctive impression of the white lights is reminiscent of a cool breeze, and the light-up switches to the summer version on July 7th, a holiday called Tanabata in Japan, every year.
In the winter, lights called "high-pressure sodium lamps" with a warm orange tone are used.
The light-up switches over to the winter version in early October every year.
There are 2 versions of the famous “Landmark light” that illuminates Tokyo Tower, these versions are named after their main color: orange (October–June) and white (July–September). However, many people consider orange to be the classic color for Tokyo Tower.
Anticipating that Tokyo will be the focus of coverage by international news agencies this summer and that the Tokyo Tower will be more frequently seen on television by people all over the world, we will be illuminating Tokyo Tower in its representative orange color*.
This may be the only year that we will get to see the orange lights illuminating the summer night sky of Tokyo. We hope you enjoy this unique moment of Tokyo Tower’s history.
*The Infinity Diamond Veil (Light up designated for some events) will be conducted on some special dates. Please refer to the calendar for details. Additionally, please maintain social distance when appreciating the illuminations.
