A marvellous attraction is turning heads of pedestrians, a few blocks away from the Mitsukoshimae Station. The art installation — titled “Tree of Light” — is a beautiful digital tree made with about 100,000 LED lights and towering at 8 meters tall. The tree assembled leaf-by-leaf reacts to wind and sound and creates a stunning and interactive display bound to enthrall, and it’s one of the many spring-themed pieces on put on display during the 2019 Nihombashi Sakura Festival. The festival is dedicated to revitalising the historically rich Nihombashi district through seasonal art, food and hanami (cherry blossom viewing). The birthplace of a national highway system, Nihombashi flourished as a commercial hub during the Edo Period.
