The afternoon tea is scheduled to run from December 1st until 25th, and each day offers three departure times: 3pm, 5pm, and 7pm. The tour runs for 90 minutes, and each guest receives a trial size of Elemis' Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm – it's one of their best-selling items.

Part of what makes the event extra special is that the route runs past a number of seasonal illuminations, including the Keyakizaka Illuminations in Roppongi Hills and the Shibuya Blue Cave illuminations. The fairytale-like ambience of the sparkling trees definitely adds a healthy dose of holiday season cheer, so consider booking one of the later sessions if you'd like to see them at their best.
