Winter Tokyo, Night is beautiful

In December, a relatively temperate Tokyo also needs a coat. In cold weather snow may fall around Christmas, and in Tokyo too many events related to Christmas are held.




Many Japanese are not Christians. For that reason, rather than celebrate Christmas as a religious event, Japanese enjoy Christmas as a winter celebration of winter. Japanese Christmas is enjoying delicious dinner and being established as a gift for children to receive gifts.


It is illumination of the night that excites the Christmas atmosphere. Because many people gather in places with beautiful illumination, regional retail stores, restaurants, shopping centers, etc. jointly decorate the LED’s decorations on the trees.

Shibuya, Shinjuku, Roppongi

There are a lot of big downtown streets in Tokyo, but each one has a lighting of illumination during the winter. The image below is the electric decoration of Shibuya, Shinjuku, Roppongi. Retail stores and restaurants use rich LEDs, aiming to increase sales by gathering a lot of people in the city with unique electric decorations.

The illumination of Tokyo is the most exciting around Christmas, but the year-end and New Year holidays are also held, and not only residents but also tourists entertain. Illumination can also be seen in cities throughout Japan except in Tokyo. If you go to Tokyo in the holiday season, it is a must – see.
