Christmas Tree At Tokyo Midtown

Posted in People, Places by tokyobling on November 27, 2011

Tokyo Midtown is the second to newest huge “center” in here in Tokyo, a massive building complete with offices, shops, restaurants, galleries, gardens, clinics etc. It is in Roppongi, the hub of Tokyo’s nightlife. Like all the major centers of Tokyo they have pulled no punches when it comes to putting on the Christmas displays including any number of Christmas trees. I think this tree, made up of little santas were also in place last year but I had a good time watching all the people thronged around taking pictures of it. Despite the fact that there are very few Christians in Japan, Christmas is really popular here. I took these photos last night when I passed the area to see the Christmas light show, more photos to come!

    Even though, Christmas in Japan is just about decorations (and about dating, if I remember correctly), this is wonderful. Love it.

    Yes the tree is so unique and artistic, but the most interesting object here in my opinion is the people taking photos of it. ^^
