Christmas In Japan

The picture above is how Hiroshima looked last December. Sadly, I don't think we'll be getting any snow for this Christmas. :(
The two pictures above were taken at Downtown Hiroshima on Peace Boulevard. Both sides of Peace Boulevard are illuminated with thousands of lights. At night, the place is packed with parents chasing their children from display to display.
At first glance you may think this photo was taken in America, but guess again. That's right, this over-the-top illuminated house is in Japan. I was totally surprised to see a house in Japan with sooo many decorations.
