Before I board a plane tomorrow afternoon for the mother country, there was one thing I had to see before they all disappear sometime right after Christmas.

Japan is famous for some spectacular illuminations.  Oddly enough none of the mega famous ones are in Tokyo.  Strange right?  Regardless we have some pretty lovely illuminations.  My friend Kathryn wasn't feeling much of the holiday spirit so I asked her along and we went to two places.

First stop Shiodome:

Blue lights everywhere!

Sea of blue

White tree
Pink tree

Green trees

Projections on the Caretta building

More projections



Santa sees you!

Christmas market

After Shiodome, we headed over to Roppongi:

Tokyo Tower sparkled for a bit...

...and then drew a heart.

Roppongi Hills

White trees


Cars & Christmas

Tree lined street

Louis Vuitton

And giant spider!  Giant rose and regular sized Tokyo Tower.

Managed to photograph the one star viewable in Tokyo.

I hope you enjoyed this little peek at some of Tokyo's illuminations.

I hope that whatever you celebrate that you spend it with the ones you love and you have a joyous time.  Happy Holidays!
