Christmas in Japan

Would a Japanese Xmas tree be complete without a Hello Kitty ornament? :)
Merry Christmas from Japan! Merii Kurisumasu! Here's our Christmas tree in our tatami room (it's normally used as bedroom so probably not kosher to do this--shhh). There are very few places in Japan to get a live tree; most people have fake ones, if anything at all. Here in Japan Christmas Eve is a popular night to go out to romantic dinner at a fancy restaurant. Either that or people get fried chicken at KFC and have Christmas cake (kurisumasu keki). Igor got me a Christmas cake of my own--it was divine. Whipped cream, sponge cake, and strawberries oh my!

Here are a few pictures of the festivities around town!
