After Bhutan we thought we would just take it easy and rest up before our trip to China (now 25 days away). For years we’ve been wanting to visit some of the Christmas Markets in Europe but it would just not be very feasible to visit them this year.
So I started researching other destinations with Christmas Markets, especially in our region of the world. Believe it or not, Christmas Markets have become very popular in Tokyo, Japan. Some of them are even officially backed by the German Tourism Association and German Embassy!
On top of this, Tokyo has also become quite famous for their “Winter Illuminations”, where millions of colorful LED lights are displayed in trees as well as on and around buildings, turning Tokyo into a sparkling wonderland!
So today we decided to take a quick week trip to Tokyo, Japan. We leave on this Friday, 6th Dec and return on Thursday, 12th Dec. Getting back on the 12th gives up 16 days before we leave for China. Plenty of time! 😄
