Tokyo Skytree® Selected for Japan 100 Moon Project to Hold Moon Viewing Event

01.August.2018 | SPOT

Down in Tokyo Skytree Town® they are set to hold an event from September 3 to 30 with the theme ‘enjoying the long nights of autumn.’

 

In February 2017, Tokyo Skytree, the tallest tower in the world, was selected as part of the Japan 100 Moon project which recognises the country’s best places to view a harvest moon from. Having been designated as such, Tokyo Skytree and Tokyo Skytree Town will host this special moon viewing event.

The moon viewing event will be a coming together of the mid-fall harvest moon and fireworks. In line with this, several other events will be held in Tokyo Skytree Town allowing people to enjoy experiencing the lure of the moon and sky.

A jazz performance has been arranged for Tokyo Skytree’s 350m tall observation deck, meaning you can enjoy chill music while gazing at the harvest moon.

There will also be a special moon themed program titled Kiseki no Tsuki (‘The Miracle of the Moon Produced by Motoo Marumaru’) at the SKYTREE ROUND THEATER®, a huge screen made on the glass windows. It will be a magical showing of music and visuals centred around the moon with Tokyo’s nightscape as the backdrop.
