Tokyo Winter Illuminations

Tokyo has a reputation for its massive neon. In the dark, it is one of the brightest spots around the globe for sure. In December, when winter illuminations reminiscent of Western Christmas lights are put into place, the city shines even a little brighter.

In Japan, Christmas is just another fun holiday, probably best compared to Halloween or Valentine’s day. The Japanese, who almost exclusively follow Shinto and Buddhism, have a relaxed attitude towards religion.
