Art Tower Mito Light-up Project
October 29 (Sat.), 2016, to March 31 (Wed.), 2021
Last year the curtain was drawn on the Art Tower Mito Starlight Fantasy project, which had been a staple of the Mito winter scene for two decades. Instead, the new Art Tower Mito Light-up Project will start this autumn.
The new project will thrust a vivid artwork of light upon Art Tower Mito's symbolic tower and the cascade fountain in the ATM Plaza, allowing them to present differing expressions depending on the season and the time of day.
Period of illumination: Throughout the year, starting on Oct. 29, 2016 (Sat)
-- At nighttime when the Art Tower Mito is open, and over the New Year's holiday season.
Times of illumination: 5:00-10:00 p.m. (later in the summer depending on time of sunset)
Free ATM Tower admission for schoolchildren
(through 9th grade) on Children's Day
May 5 (Fri.), 2017
Times: 9:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Free for schoolchildren through 9th grade
200 yen for adults
On May 5, which marks the Children's Day holiday in Japan, schoolchildren through 9th grade are allowed to visit the observation deck of the tower at Art Tower Mito for free (normally costing 100 yen).
Maybe you'll discover something new when viewing, from a high place, the city landscape that you are used to seeing from the ground. We look forward to getting a lot of visitors to the tower on Children's Day this year, including your family members and your friends!
