Shinjuku Illuminations 2014

Japan doesn't celebrate Christmas like they do in Western countries. Sad but true and it has taken my many years to get used to the fact that Christmas Day is just a normal working day for most folks here.

Now, I just roll with it and enjoy what the city does offer such as the spectacular illuminations that are on display all across the city. In fact, I think Japan goes all out on holiday decorations even more so than Hawaii, where I grew up. Interesting no?

Since Shinjuku is just a few train stops away for me, this place is hard for me to ignore. But who would want to when it's just so beautiful. As the weather gets colder and the leaves fall off the trees, the lights add some much-needed color and cheer to the rather dreary winters.

Check out my video of the Illuminations in Shinjuku by clicking on this link. 

I hope you enjoyed this tour of the Shinjuku Winter Illuminations. If you did, let me know in the comments below. Next time, I'll be showing you more beautiful holiday illuminations throughout the city of Tokyo...well as much as I can go to anyway. 

Cheers everyone and hope you're all having a wonderful day.
