Sun, December 23, 2018 - Mon, December 24, 2018

Have fun

The first-ever Candle Night @ Shinjuku Central Park will be held on Sunday, December 23rd and Monday, December 24th at Shinjuku Central Park’s Water Plaza. Entrance is free! During this Christmas-themed event, participants will decorate around 2,000 candles and put them in the park in order to make a giant Christmas tree. Anyone from small children to adults can participate in this event. In order to enjoy Shinjuku Central Park to the fullest during this winter, a lot of groups have come together to make this event possible. An example of this is the candle wraps designed by Tama Art University students. Other schools in the area have all come together to help to make this event a success. There will also be food trucks in the park, as well as winter lights. This year, spend your Christmas in the park illuminated by candle light with skyscrapers at the backdrop.
