This waterfall made of animated LEDs is conveniently paired with a pop-up mojito stand, so you can ooh and ah at the light-up while getting lit up yourself.
Which would you rather do: Enjoy the serenity of a cascading river while sipping a cocktail? Or swat mosquitoes while smearing on blister cream after a pesky hike?
They look kind of pixellated in the still photo, so here’s a little video to show you that they were actually more fun in real life (nothing to do with the mojito SHUT UP)
Sadly you can only see the waterfall for two more nights, because summer officially ends on Sunday, August 28th at Tokyo Midtown. If you’d like to have your own chance to choose mojitos over mosquitoes, a map is on my website The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had.
And by the way, don’t miss all the amusing stuff that you’ll only see in

Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
