Today, I wanted to just talk a little about Tokyo Sky Tree. For anyone in Tokyo, with somewhat of a view of Tokyo Sky Tree, you will notice that it has looked funny this past week. Tokyo Sky Tree has had special lighting leading up to the 2020 Olympic City vote this past week. From August 24, 2013 to September 7, 2013, Tokyo Sky Tree will be showing 2 variations of colours. The first is “Meika” (明花). This colouration has 4 variations and it was designed by children in Sumida-ku. It is a nice change in colour compared to the regular 2 colours. The other colouration is a golden colour that is for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic bid. I often see this as I am often heading home when this colour is being displayed. It is basically a golden orange with colourful lights twinkling running up and down the side of Sky Tree itself. It is a nice colour, but it isn’t the most spectacular. I still enjoy it though.
If you want to see these colours, you have until September 7th, as I mentioned. Meika is on display each night from 1845-2000 and 2100-2200. The Olympic colour is on display from 2000-2100 and 2200-2300. There’s only 1 week left to see this and if you are lucky enough to see it, you’ll be one of the special few million to see it this way.
