We appreciate that while many of you are interested in Japan and Japanese culture, not all of you are able to visit the Land of the Rising Sun quite so easily. But Christmas is a great time of year here in Tokyo, what with all the lights, decorations and hand-holding couples, so in order to share the various seasonal sights with you we took the liberty of putting together a little slideshow.

Join us after the jump for a photo tour of Tokyo’s best Christmas illuminations!

We visited several areas of Tokyo decorated with dazzling lights for the Holiday Season, including Ginza, Hibiya, Omotesando, Shiodome and Roppongi. We hope you enjoy these scenes from Tokyo in the Holiday spirit!
