I'm happy to see these gorgeous illuminations of Keyakizaka Street because today's original plan of mine started from scratch once. My original plan was to go to Meguro River to see the blue illuminations named "Blue Cave". But so many people visited the river that the illuminations themselves were called off on weekends. Instead of Meguro River, I decided to come to Roppongi. I was not actually sure if the illuminations here were great. But as soon as I saw this view, I felt so lucky to have made this decision.
These illuminations are a symbol of Roppongi in winter, welcoming lots of people from around Japan. This is famous because you can enjoy the illuminations of the street and those of Tokyo Tower at the same time. The color is usually blue, but it sometimes changes into the red one.
Once it turns red, the atmosphere of the street totally changes into a different one. Illuminations are such an interesting magic of creating the landscapes of winter.
