To Do in Tokyo: The Yebisu Garden Place Christmas Illumination

6:46:00 PM
Christmas is a time for dating here in Japan and you can find many places both in and around Tokyo where they are having special winter illuminations to help get you in the right mood. Some of my favorites so far include the Red Brick Warehouse Christmas Market in Yokohama and the Country Farm Tokyo German Village winter illumination in Chiba. This time my darling and I went to the Yebisu Garden Place to enjoy some time together there.

【Norwegianclass101】 How do Norwegian People Celebrate Christmas?

7:06:00 PM

Hi there! It is time for Christmas again and here in Japan I've been spending the 24th celebrating with friends and sleeping in a capsule hotel after renting out my home on AirBnb (I guess that's a story for another time). In Norway we celebrate Christmas mainly on the 24th so it's already a bit overdue, but here's a video I've been working on with where we give a brief introduction to how Norwegians celebrate Christmas. Hope you like the video! God Jul!

Thanks for watching! Please feel free to leave any comments or questions below

More and more of the hotels opening up in the Japanese capital Tokyo are catering towards foreign guests. With an increasing number of visitors preferring apartment-style accommodation that can accommodate larger family groups as well there are also hotels that try to adapt to this trend by offering wider rooms and the sort of equipment you'd regularly find in an apartment. This is also the case for The Centurion Classic Akasaka, a newly opened hotel situated in Akasaka, an upscale area north of Roppongi popular among wealthy foreigners.
