From April through December, when nighttime horseraces are held, each section of the racetrack is beautifully illuminated with gorgeous lights.
In October of 2018, TCK will debut a new large-scale illumination event using around 8 million lights. Watch us become Tokyo’s new night entertainment location as the largest-scale illumination spot in Kanto.
Here we will introduce some of the involved areas in a sneak-peek.
TokyoA New Beautiful Nighttime View
Oi Keibajo-mae Station
- North Gate
The road from Tokyo Monorail’s “Oi Keibajo-mae Station” to the North Gate will be beautifully lit in a kaleidoscope of colors, pulling you into a gorgeous new world. Get excited for the upcoming illumination!
North Gate Admission
The admission ticketing area by the gate will be decorated with lovely colorful lights, matched to the changing seasons. There is also a special program planned here for the grand opening in October.
Twin Spinning Fantasies
For the first time ever, the racecourse will feature a pair of merry-go-rounds! The first is the “TOKYO CITY KEIBA” version, while the other is the “TOKYO MEGA ILLUMINATION” version. These two original-work merry-go-rounds will be linked with the surrounding lights. It’ll also make for a cute place to take photos!
WONDER MEDIA TREE
The trees in this area will be bathed in gorgeous colors, using new illumination technologies that have hardly been used in Japan thus far. A preview color program consisting of seasonal colors will be held during the prologue to the main event, April through September. In October, the surprising main event will be unveiled!
An enormous 360 ° LED screen will be installed in the vast UMAILE Square. The screen’s display program will be updated monthly. Enjoy the videos!
The perimeter of the racecourse will be newly illuminated with warm colors, creating a beautiful contrast with the cool tones of the lit-up trees.
