Tokyo Tower's Landmark Light is lit up with 180 light bulbs. "Landmark Light" has two patterns: a "winter version" and a "summer version."The orange lighting that everyone knows is the so-called "winter version."This winter version is used for around 9 of the 12 months in a year. The remaining 3 months use the summer version. Tokyo Tower's Landmark Light "changes its clothes" for the season.
The summer Landmark Light uses silver lights called "metal halide lamps," and their trait is a white tone with a refreshing and cool image. Every year on July 7th, from the night of Tanabata, the lighting changes to the summer-type. The winter Landmark Light brightens up the transparent winter air even more with orange lights called "high-pressure sodium lamps." Every year from the night of October 2nd the lighting changes to the winter-type.
Total of 276 lights shine outwards from the Tokyo Tower.
17 layers of light may each change into 7 different colors.
Diamond Veil is lit only on Saturdays during the two hours between 20:00 through 22:00.
