Tokyo Illumination (December 2010)

You can see beautiful illumination everywhere in Tokyo, especially this time of the year, Christmas season.
Travelers from Australia, Singapore, Malaysia and all over the world come to Tokyo for the illumination.
Many Tokyo hotels will run out of rooms by Christmas, make sure to make reservation a head of times.
Only 1% of Japanese people are christian, but even though, we like the atmosphere of Christmas.

Odaiba is a newly developed area and there are many shopping centers for young people.
So, they lighted up everywhere in and out of the shopping centers.
Venus Fort is very popular shopping center with Italian atmosphere.
It seems snow and aurora (northern lights) falling from the ceiling.
