At the entrance to the Urban Dock Lalaport, Toyosu, there is a great photo spot free to use. It includes a back-drop of Santa’s grotto and an artificial Santa beside whom you can get a photo. Every night from 4pm to midnight the “Santa Claus Hiroba” is lit up, as are other parts of Lalaport and the dock area. Within Lalaport there are all sorts of Christmas offers, workshops and special events, including many centred around the very popular animation “Yokai Watch”.
One of their popular free events is a live concert event with fireworks to the backdrop of the seaside illumination. This year, 2015, it is taking place on Sunday the 13th of December from 7pm around the Seaside Deck Area. More information on the big event on December 13th can be found here: http://prtimes.jp/main/html/rd/p/000000085.000001771.html
From the English version of their website:
Located 10 minutes by train and on foot from Ginza, it can be accessed from the Yurakucho Line Toyosu Station and the Yurikamome Line Toyosu Station.
The site is next to Tokyo Bay, making it possible to access the mall from Asakusa and Odaiba via a water-bus. The location of the shopping mall is excellent, even providing a view of Rainbow Bridge.
The wide variety of shops (180 in total) includes everything from Uniqlo and other casual fashion shops to the 100-yen shop The Daiso. When the weather is clear, you can even sit on the terrace and have a relaxing meal while gazing over the ocean.
You can find information for all Christmas events, for all Lalaports, on their website here: ららぽーと｜LaLaport Xmas.
