Held purpose and  implementation summary

Spirit of the event

The area around Tokyo Station is a town of various aspects, where history, the future, and culture coexist.
Today, it continues to evolve as a unique town that dynamically fuses history, tradition, culture, art, business and the spirit of innovation, and as a nodal point that connects Tokyo with the rest of Japan, and Japan with the rest of the world.
In the same area, year-end illumination events have become something of an annual winter tradition ever since the TOKYO MILLENARIO was held in 1999. This year too, from the Tokyo Marunouchi area, Japan's central city block, we will be holding the Tokyo Michiterasu 2016 with the desire to brightly light up the future
(and shine light into the unknown, "michi wo terasu" in Japanese).
