Forget the plastic Santas and bobbing dwarves mistaken for elves – let’s skip right to the computer-choreographed field of lights that pulses and ripples to wintry electronic music! The display at Tokyo Midtown this year is jaw-droppingly spectacular, with shadowy shapes that flicker across the twinkly landscape like clouds passing in fast motion, punctuated by train-like snakes of lights that carve up the field of dreams like an urban Christmas cake. Here’s a little piece of it, with music! In comparison, Roppongi Hills’ display is a little lacking in fireworks, but it’s still hard to beat the view looking toward Tokyo Tower on a clear winter night.
