A little Christmas in Fuchinobe

My family and I went to a Christmas party last night in Fuchinobe, Sagamihara city.  Here are a couple pictures of Christmas decorations.  Merry Christmas everyone!

The Night Lights of Minato Mirai

I’ll let these pictures speak for me. Earlier this week, I was at Minato Mirai at night. There are lots of lights there. It looks great! These photos don’t do it justice. But I hope you enjoy!

I’ve managed to join this weekend’s “Show Me Japan” while on holiday in Canada!

Exploring Japan: Winter lights at Tokyo Dome City

On January 10, 2010, after attending the Furusato Matsuri Tokyo in Bunkyo Ward, I looked around Tokyo Dome City a bit.  It was approaching sunset, and they started turning on the winter lights.  Tokyo Dome City is an entertainment complex that includes the Tokyo Dome stadium, an amusement park with a roller coaster, a spa, and a shopping centre with many restaurants.  I hope you enjoy the photos!

This is part of Tokyo Dome City, a complex connected to Tokyo Dome, that has entertainment, rides and restaurants.

This is the roller coaster. Looks like fun!

The roller coaster actually goes through a hole in the building.

This large geodesic sphere will soon be very colourful.

In Tokyo Dome City, there's a seafood restaurant called Bubba Gump. If it sounds familiar, it's a name from Forrest Gump.

The winter illuminations have been turned on!

This one is very colourful.

There are a lot of restaurants and shopping in this building.

Everything is all lit up. You can see Tokyo Dome in the background on the left.

A similar view from the last picture, but with different settings on my camera.

There's a fountain on the ground floor. I find this place very colourful.

That's the first sphere I saw, but now lit up.

The first sphere with Tokyo Dome in the background. It's sunset now.

There's another smaller sphere.

A look back at the sphere, roller coaster and ferris wheel.

This walkway has colourful arches that change colour.

See? They changed colour.
