Best Christmas Decorations In Japan
Tokyo Christmas Illuminations 2011

Christmas Decorations In Japan are pretty amazing.

Seasonal illuminations before and during Christmas are nothing short of spectacular.

Don’t expect anything subtle here.
Christmas in Japan is celebrated very glamorously.

Christmas lighting and displays in Tokyo start at the end of October.
Some of them are kept up until Valentine’s Day in February. Tokyo sightseeing in the evenings becomes a very romantic experience.

The major decorations are done by big corporations. They light up their buildings and the trees on the street in a very artistic way.
