“TOKYO LIGHTS”, which started in 2021, is a light festival that sends messages for the future as a new Tokyo tradition.
The word “LIGHTS” in TOKYO LIGHTS has various meanings, such as “vision” indicating future possibilities, “innovativeness” indicating expressive technology, “human resources” who will be responsible for the future, and “community” that nurtures and gathers them.  This is an event that collects these “lights” and uses their chemical reactions to send a shining message of hope from Tokyo to the world. The centerpiece of the event, one of the world’s largest international projection mapping competitions, will project works from around the world onto the huge, historic building called Seitoku Memorial Picture Gallery, providing a rare opportunity to experience an overwhelming and high-quality visual experience. In the Festival of Lights area, light art and advanced entertainment content are arranged to give you the feeling of traveling through an extraordinary world of light, and you can have a wide variety of experiences throughout the area.
