With the horrible but funny Halloween passing away, Tokyo is getting start to prepare for the coming of Christmas Day. Like Chinese who has the off-year customs, Japanese spend the Christmas as the off year to greet the arrival of the new year since the last year is about to pass. And the new year holidays begin this time too. It is full of the atmosphere of Christmas in Japan this time with all the streets be decorated with lanterns and the Christmas Package of each kind of products start selling in every department. With the development of Tourism of Japan, more and more people travel Japan these years, especially in Christmas to feel the different atmosphere of Christmas in Japan.
One of the special way for Japanese to celebrate the Christmas is to watch the illumination light show. You may ask that is it worthy to come all the way to Japan just for a light show? I think some pictures may be more convincing here.
