Caretta Shiodome Christmas Illumination 2014

Caretta Shiodome
Another recommended Christmas illumination location in Tokyo is at Caretta Shiodome near to Shinbashi Station.

Every night during the illumination period there is a musical display of the lights

What amazed me was the courtesy of the Japanese. When the illumination display started, people in the first few rows squatted down so that people at the back could get to see the illumination display better.

Cold and beautiful time to enjoy Christmas in Tokyo.

Forget the year Party 2014
Forget the year party with friends after our last Christmas illumination session for 2014.

A bōnenkai (忘年会 literally “forget the year gathering”?) is a Japanese drinking party that takes place at the end of the year, and is generally held among groups of co-workers or friends. The purpose of the party, as its name implies, is to forget the woes and troubles of the past year, and hopefully look to the new year, usually by consumption of large amounts of alcohol. A bōnenkai does not take place on any specific day, but they are usually held in December
