Santa is coming soon! The holiday season has finally started. In Germany, traditional Christmas markets brighten up the darkest and coldest season of the year. But did you know, that you can experience an authentic German Christmas market in Tokyo? In this video, we will share everything you need to know and all the highlights of the Christmas market in Hibiya Park!
When going to the Christmas market at Hibiya Park, please use the hand sanitizer provided at the entrance. Your body temperature will be measured at the same time.
The vibe at the Christmas market resembles what would see at a similar event in Germany. The beautifully decorated stalls sell Christmas decorations and handmade goods that make a great gift.
If you have ever been to a Christmas market, you know that the food stalls offering delicious treats such as mulled wine, beer, and sausages are the biggest highlight.
All benches and tables at the venue can be used to enjoy your food – but please mind social distancing. You can eat and drink while enjoying live performances inside the tent, too.
The highlight of the Christmas market is one of the world’s largest wooden Christmas pyramids! This is the gigantic version of a classic German Christmas decoration. Wooden dolls with various motifs are spinning around overlooking the market. So cute!
Don’t miss the light show. The big fountain in the center of the venue is lit up – a must-see!
Our conclusion: the traditional Christmas market in Hibiya Park brightens up Tokyo’s winter at least as bright as the original markets in Germany!
