Coredo and Mitsukoshi Sakura Light Up

Posted in Places by tokyobling on March 30, 2014

To celebrate the opening of the new Coredo building in Nihonbashi Muromachi the other week there is a special pink cherry blossom themed light up taking place right now. The light up covers the sandstone colored Mitsukoshi department store, the brown black and steel colored Coredo Muromachi and also the granite grey Sumitomo Mitsui Bank and unexpectedly perhaps especially the bank looks fantastic in pink! There is something special about the austere classic architecture of the bank lit up by bright pink! I think they should make the light up permanent. It is on everyday between 18:30 and 23:00 finishing on April 6th. An already quite pretty part of Tokyo will be even prettier, for a short while.

    Oh my, you inspire me to do a pink light building marathon some night! Must get Tokyo Tower too… These are gorgeous.

      Thank you Jonelle! I recommend it, Nihonbashi is not exactly on any tourist maps so it might be a good opportunity to make the trip! (^-^)

    Whenever looking at shots about the cities I always have that feeling that I lived in Japan sometimes before o_O I also had some dream being dream, pretty realistic ones. Those were good times too :D

      Thank you! Maybe you did? After all, we believe in reincarnation here in Japan! (^-^)
