Tokyo-Style Christmas

Hello everyone. It's #1 reporting from Tokyo where it has been incredibly sunny and warm since my arrival (yes, it is supposed to be winter here...). I thought you might find it fun to see what the Christmas spirit looks like around here:


  1. Is there any turkey hiding in there ?
    I have heard sushi is very fresh fish - maybe that would make a yummy Christmas meal ?
    Good luck on your travels.

  2. Hmmm, I think the Japanese Christmas may be even yummier than the American Christmas!

  3. Thank you for sharing Japanese Christmas.
    We Japanese almost puts up Christmas decorations and eats Christmas cake and Kentucky Fried Chickens though only around 2% of us are Christians. We love Christmas mood very much. It makes us cheerful and happy! I wonder if we are funny.

  4. Loved the photos!

    Keep posting lots - you couldn't post enough for Murray! He was fascinated looking at them earlier!

    take care

  5. It's always interesting seeing how the same event is marked in different places.

    We are so soory we missed the Beebster's first birthday celebration. We hope he had the happiest day ever! :)

  6. What great pictures. Mum says that everytime she sees the word Usagi, she thinks of Usagi Yojimbo

  7. What fantastic pictures!!! Hope you have a wonderful time!

  8. It's great seeing how different nations celebrate - Our silly mum loves the picture of the chimney hat with Father Christmas legs sticking out the top!!

  9. Hmmm, is the Christmas Party Set a little pair of paper booties for fried chicken drumsticks?

    Tokyo looks fun!

  10. That does look very interesting indeed! We had no idea the red-dressed Santa is popular over there too.

  11. Furst off, our word is PAPER!

    Sekhondly, Mom appreciates the sharing of the khulture fur the howlidays!

    Thirdly, she's drooling ovFUR the thoughts of sushi and other yummies!

    PeeEssWoo: Hi Tommy! Mom shared some Brittany/Springer or is that Springer/Brittany pups on her FB page - she thought of woo straightaway - furry furry khute!

  12. It looks like a lot of the celebrating centers around food. That is just perfect as far as we are concerned!
    What a really fun time to be in Tokyo.

    How are things at home with the little ones.
    Hope they are enjoying the sitters.

  13. How FUN! Mommy thinks blogging is the best thing for learning about people all over the world! We see a lot of the signs are in English; is it widely spoken?
    The angel wings with the red bow was our favorite.

  14. Enjoyed seeing your photos...reminded me of my trip to Japan in 2008. We were there almost the whole month of November, and just like here, everything was already decorated for Christmas.

  15. Wow! They are very festive aren't they?

  16. Wow! Quite the place. They pull out all the stops for sure!

  17. Wow that is so cool. We would never have guessed that there would be so much Christmas stuff in Tokyo!

  18. Wow! Fried chicken as a Christmas meal! Just doesn't feel right to me...

  19. Sure does look festive and pretty there. :)

  20. Very cool. We never saw pictures of Japan at Christmas

    Thanks for sharing the atmosphere over there with us here!


  22. Oh how fun! We kitties would love sushi for Christmas dinner. I don't think mom and dad will go for it....but maybe...

  23. Everything looks so tasty!
    The human loves everything Japan, but she saw the pics of the Santas and got a little scared xD

  24. Wow, very cool to see how Tokyo looks at Christmas!
