Christmas in Tokyo

Brian and I spent Christmas 2014 in Japan.  I've written about it before (here, here and here), but I was looking at the pictures this morning and was once again amazed by the amount of Christmas decorations.  The Japanese seem to have embraced the idea of Santa, Christmas lights and Christmas trees.  I thought I'd share a few pictures today, some I posted earlier and some I had not shared.

Who could forget the Santa dancing in the square in front of Shinjuku Station?  I can't.

 Or the Christmas tree at the traditional ryokan in Hida-Furukawa:
 Snowmen were everywhere!


This Christmas tree was near Ikebukuro Station:
 Tokyo at night was beautifully lit.

 It was a wonderful time to be in Japan!

Oh what fun . . . . .! I love the Japanese aesthetic in just about every way. What a wonderful experience you had last year.

I loved Japan when I was there a few years ago, but not at Christmas. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
