Christmas in Japan is not what you’d expect normally, it’s so much better. Japan takes all the best parts of Christmas and packs it into one. It’s a magical time of year for many people and the Japanese focus on creating that perfect atmosphere. When they put up their illuminations they certainly don’t do it by half. Everywhere you go there are bright lights twinkling away, drawing you in and wrapping you up in the magic. There are a few not to be missed though and the Japan Christmas Course makes sure you don’t miss the best. It’s important to mix up some tradition in there too so you get the full experience. A chance to dress in a traditional Yukata, or dining out on a Yakatabune as you float down the river through Tokyo, really tops things off.
