Illuminations are one of the trademark events of the colder months in Japan, and you'll find a plethora of them to check out across the country, including many in the Tokyo area. The Tachikawa Sansan Illumination is one that's ultra easy to access – it started back in 2004 and includes lights decorating the trees along Sansan Road and around Tachikawa Station's north exit.
