Christmas & New Year Lights in Japan

クリスマス

The last decade in Japan has seen the country wholeheartedly embrace Christmas with all that entails: pizza delivery boys and massage parlor girls in Santa suits, Christmas cakes in bakeries and, of course, Christmas illuminations.

Most major railway stations now have elaborate illuminations as do many local parks, restaurants and bars. A growing number of private houses also sprout fairy lights as Yuletide in Japan approaches.
