The world has grown weary through the years, but at Christmas, it is young. – Phillips Brooks
“Breathtaking” those were the words that came to my mind when I saw the bubbles floating into the air, the beautiful melody mixed with lights dancing into it’s every tune, the smoke that slowly fills the space and heightens every color then turns them unto subtle hues.
Then I thought too myself, “Japan is a country that knows how to throw parties for festivities the right way.” They make everything look so good. Join me as I take you to the cultural district in Tokyo where you will not only find an abundance in Museums and art, you’ll also fall in love with beautiful Christmas illuminations Roppongi Style: Roppongi Midtown Christmas Illumination 2019.
