Little Sun Garden at Roppongi Art Night

April 2015

A beautiful Little Sun Garden was in full bloom at Roppongi Art Night in Japan on 25–26 April 2015.

Launched in 2009, Roppongi Art Night is a one-night, all-night, art extravaganza that celebrates the enjoyment of art in everyday living, and serves as a trailblazing model for local initiatives in the Japanese capital. Staged in the district of Roppongi with its high concentration of retail stores and cultural institutions, Roppongi Art Night – going from strength to strength each year as Tokyo’s premier art festival – offers an extraordinary one-night-only full-on blast of contemporary art, design, music, video and performance art via a huge range of works dotted around the streets.

Visitors were amazed to see so many Little Sun solar lamps all in one place, and it was a main attraction at the event. Little Suns were also available for purchase, and every person who decided to buy a Little Sun enabled one Little Sun to be delivered to an African community without electricity at a locally affordable price.
