17.February.2018 | SPOT

The spring-season limited event, “Sora (sky) Picnic” will be held from the 1st of March 2018 (Thurs.) to the 14th of March (Wed.) at SKY CIRCUS Sunshine 60’s Observation Deck (Tokyo/Ikebukuro).



■A “sky-viewing” event held under clear spring skies

An artificial lawn picnic area will be installed in SKY CIRCUS Sunshine 60’s Observation Deck as a leisure spot! The committee of the event is hoping that visitors of the event will enjoy the sky while feeling the fresh air.


“Sora Picnic” is an event where you can enjoy picnicking in an interior area which is warm and does not have pollen dust. The area has hammocks and bead sofas and photogenic photo-taking spot where you can take photos with your boyfriend/girlfriend, friends or family. The event is recommended for adults who want to have a wonderful weekend since they will sell alcohol.




■”Picnic Basket” will be sold!

The café inside the observation deck, “Café Quu Quu Quu” will sell the special menu item “Picnic Basket” which is a big hotdog, potatoes, wafers and candies which are suited to be shared by two persons. They are also planning to sell cute-looking foods/drinks and alcohol. Cute picnic mats can be rented too!




■Books about sky, cloud and asterism can be read, as much as you want!

Visitors of “Sora Picnic” can spend a comfortable time while viewing the sky and the venue has picture books/books/photo books about many kinds of categories such as “sky,” “cloud,” “weather,” “asterism” and “the globe.”




■Visiting the venue during “Magic Hour” is recommended.

Visiting the venue during “Magic Hours,” that is, the periods of time right before sunrise and right after sundown is highly recommended. The sky is colored in several colors during those periods when the sun is hidden behind the horizon. You can view the sky during this “Magic Hour” from SKY CIRCUS Sunshine 60’s Observation Deck and you might be able to view Mount Fuji when weather conditions are excellent.
