Laid Back Picnic - English -

I enjoy picnics around Tokyo

Christmas Light Event "Blue Grotto SHIBUYA" @SHIBUYA


Shibuya's blue illuminations

Shibuya was dyed blue.
It feels very strange.
It's bluer than the Chefchaouen town in Morocco.
※This article is an English translation of an article posted in December 2018.



What is a blue grotto?

The name Blue Grotto is Awesome.
When I went there, I understood the meaning of the grotto.
Because it was dyed with blue light around me.


About 800m from Shibuya station to Yoyogi Park will be dyed blue.
This route departs from Hachiko Exit of Shibuya Station.


There are many people in Tokyo, so I recommend you to go on weekdays.

The Blue Grotto is called " Ao no dōkutsu" in Japanese.

Official website

The official website is Japanese only.


Nearby cafe

There are so many cafes in Shibuya.

For example, you can enjoy Matcha sweets at the Japanese-style cafe "Kagurazaka Saryo" near Shibuya Station.

I will introduce the cafe in the next article, so I will put a link later.
