Roppongi Christmas Market

A taste of Germany in Tokyo

Venue: O-Yane Plaza, Roppongi Hills When: Late Nov - Late Dec 2023

Now in its 15th year, the Roppongi Christmas Market aims to reproduce the feeling of the world's biggest Christmas market in Stuttgart, Germany - albeit on a much smaller scale! The market will host seven different stores which will be selling over 1500 different items, including ornaments, wreaths, and other Christmas home decor.

There will also be a variety of German cuisine on offer at the event, including sausages, goulash, and glühwein, a popular festive season drink. There is no admission fee to enjoy the market's atmosphere, but do bring along some yen if you're planning to make a purchase.

Getting there

The Roppongi Christmas Market takes place at the O-Yane Plaza at Roppongi Hills (at the intersection of Art Walk and West Walk, the two main pedestrian walkways through the area).

Roppongi Hills can be accessed in just a minute on foot from Roppongi Station, which is served by the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line and the Toei Oedo Line.

This is not a Christmas Market only a three small stalls one shop and a couple food venues. It was so sad

Of course it's much smaller than the European markets (hence why the event write up says "albeit on a much smaller scale"), but the event itself is literally called the Roppongi Christmas Market.

Always important to remember when living or working in a foreign country that things aren't going to be the same as they are back home -- expectation management is key!

Hope that despite your disappointment you can find the true meaning of Christmas and managed to get some joy from the event. Enjoy the festive season! :)
