Merry Christmas from Japan
It's the second year in a row I spend Christmas away from home. As much as I miss a family Christmas with my mom's cuisine and treats, Christmas abroad can be a lot of fun, and very relaxing. I'll have a quiet Christmas in beautiful, warm Shikoku. Hiking, movie nights, home made meals, wine, cookies, temples, castles, and more movies are on the agenda. All that in wonderful company.
The real Christmas magic will happen in Kyoto... Kyoto the loveliest city in Japan. Kyoto in the wintertime, beautiful illuminations, more temples, and tea ceremonies with Geishas. Magical.
And, to top it off, a trek to Tokyo to ring the new year in style. Shopping in Harajuku, concerts, dancing, cupcakes, karaoke, birthday party... all over Tokyo craziness. Lost in Translation style.
Merry Christmas from Japan! xo
