    • An annual eco-friendly event where you can enjoy "uchimizu," a tradition in Japan to sprinkle water onto the pavements, in the middle of the city. We will sprinkle stored water, such as rain water saved in pet bottles, simultaneously in the area from Roppongi crossing to Tokyo Midtown Gaien East Street. To tackle the heat-island effect, we have been holding this event on the "Taisho no hi (a day of major heat) " annually from 2007, in collaboration with organizations such as Neighborhood Associations and Shopping District Promotion Associations. You can actively enjoy this charm of summer.
