Disney Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Tokyo

November 2012. Tokyo, Japan

On November 1st, 2012, Omotesando Hills held a Christmas light up ceremony that celebrated the 110th Anniversary of Walt Disney. This year, the Christmas tree was entirely surrounded by 25,000 Swarovski crystals and the event was given the overall theme of “Love”.

Empire Entertainment Japan was responsible for the event’s entire production, casting child actress, Mana Ashida, as Cinderella. “Mana-Chan” - as she is affectionately known - ascended the stairs wearing a beautiful white fairy-tale dress, escorted by Prince Charming. The two stood beside the sparkling tree, admiring the Christmas illuminations while surrounded by an awestruck audience.

This event was one of the media highlights of the week in Japan, and having successfully delivered the Christmas spirit to Omotesando Hills, Empire is delighted with another fairy tale ending.
