From early November until late March, Tokyo's Akihabara UDX complex will host an illumination event under the theme "Happy Rainbow UDX Winter". The event will include rainbow-colored illuminated trees lining a 160 meter stretch of road, a 6.5 meter high Christmas tree glowing in bright white, illuminated walkway areas, and more.

Inside the venue there will also be seasonal videos on display which have been created by animation artist Sawako Kabuki.

Best of all, there is no admission fee to enjoy the event.
