Christmas is a very big tradition back in my home country, the Philippines. So when I moved here in Japan, I was really looking for ways to feel the Christmas spirit this holiday season. One thing I found out that is big in Japan during this time is the Christmas illumination lightening up the city. I was able to go to the first day of illumination at The Tokyo Station Marunouchi last December 24, 2015. One of Japan’s busiest railway station was surrounded with Christmas illumination, making for amazing views. Christmas is indeed in the air!
The Tokyo Marunouchi illumination will be held from December 24 until December 27 and can be accessed through the Central Marunouchi exit of the Tokyo Station.
