Where are the New Year's countdown events in Tokyo?

Shiba Koen - Zojoji

Zojoji Temple in Shiba Koen has a countdown event we have been going to for close to 20 years. If you get there about 8 p.m. you can get a ticket for an environmentally friendly ballon. Thousands of balloons are released by well wishers to welcome in the New Year after the countdown. The back drop of Tokyo Tower is also an added attraction. Dress warm and be prepared for crowds.
