There is an annual illumination event around Christmas season at the west and south exit areas of JR Shinjuku Station. At the shopping street of Shinjuku "MyLord," you can go through a gorgeous illumination tunnel and enjoy cute pink Christmas trees. At "Southern Terrace," colorful illuminations along a path, JR East's penguin characters with Christmas decorations, and a cube Christmas tree are nicely displayed in the entire terrace area.

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS: An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here. 日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。
