Tokyo Christmas Market

A taste of Europe in Tokyo

Venue: Meiji Jingu Gaien When: Late Nov - Late Dec 2024

Christmas is a season for family, and especially lovers in Japan. The Tokyo Christmas Market is one of the most extravagant ones in Japan. Supported by the German Tourism and German Embassy, visitors will definitely get a taste of Europe.

The Christmas Pyramid is a known symbol of Christmas in Europe, which will also be showcased here, along with stellar illuminations. Hibiya will turn into a cozy Christmas town, with a 14-meter tall Christmas tree shipped from Germany!

Stalls and shops like those in Zeifen village will open; from handmade holiday ornaments to hot chocolate, beer and Christmas workshops, this market is perfect for the holiday season. There will also be live performances, like choir from Germany.

If you plan on attending, please note that ticket prices differ from weekdays to weekends/holidays (1000 JPY and 1500 JPY for adults respectively). This increases to 2000 JPY during the period from December 23rd through 25th.

The first evening of the event starts at 16:00 to 21:30, but all other days run from 11:00 to 21:30 (last orders at 21:00 for all days).

Getting there

Meiji Jingu Gaien can be accessed in under 5 minutes on foot from Gaienmae Station on the Tokyo Metro Ginza line.
