Twinkle Color Christmas 2021 in Shinjuku, Tokyo

A winter illumination event “Little Twin Stars x Shinjuku Southern Terrace Twinkle Color Christmas 2021” in collaboration with Sanrio’s popular character Little Twin Stars (Kiki and Lala) will be held at Shinjuku Southern Terrace from 29 November 2021.

The event features a massive 4m tall Christmas tree with the Little Twin Star’s theme colour pink and blue lights. With a collaboration with the popular installation art group MIRRO BOWLER, the glittering lights of the tree using mirror balls and soap bubbles can be enjoyed during day and night. Around the tree, there will be also neon signs and light-up inspired by Little Twin Stars.
