Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I’ve got a few actual fashion and travel related posts I really want to do, but for now enjoy some Christmas in Japan photos from the last two years, including magical times at Tokyo Disney Sea. Foods, lights, trees and random Santas.

christmasinjapan-sweetsforest-tree

I’ve blogged about Sweets Forest in Jiyugaoka before but they stepped their game up in a redesign and Christmas fantasy. Talk about a great date spot.

The walkway up to Sweets Forest is equally pretty.

christmasinjapan-dryice-popcorn-sweets-forest

I only had one seasonal sweet and this was from a Popcorn pop-up place. Popcorn is still really popular in Japan. They filled popcorn, puffed rice and other light things and poured DRY ICE over the whole thing. The they topped with matcha ice cream and raspberries. It was smoking while I ate it with the toothpicks. Probably super unsafe to be eating dry ice items, but I followed the directions and saved my ice cream until last and made it through. My mouth smoked each time I ate some. I looked like I was vaping LOL

christmasinjapan-decoratedhouse

Most houses in Japan are boring looking and don’t decorate for Christmas, but this one in my neighborhood did ad their garlands even lit up at night.

Floresta‘s 2016 special donut for Christmas. Delicious as always.

Line icon Brown is decorated in the Harajuku store for Christmas. Human hand prints for size.

Shibuya Parco was lit up for Christmas. Cuteness factor by Frances (franceslovesyou)

christmasinjapan-shibuya109-christmas

Shibuya 109 for 2015 Christmas did Exile and a nice red and green theme. This year it’s silver with Exo. I’m not a fan. They turned an old discount shop on B2 into an event space for EXO this year. Event space (along with theme cafes) is the answer all around Japan on how to deal failing clothing stores and weakening malls. Shibuya 0101 also now has event spaces, theme cafes and floor for otaku merchandise. Quite a step-down for the mall that used to house all Sweet magazine‘s main stores. There you go, trend commentary in a Christmas photo post. BOOM.

christmasinjapan-roppongi-hills-tree

If Roppongi could not get more boring they’ve put out the dullest tree in front of Roppongi Hills.

christmasinjapan-santa-darth

Darth Santa is the only way I want presents from now on at Kiddyland Harajuku.

Tokyo Disney Christmas

Tokyo Disney Sea is my favorite Disney, but after going to Christmas event at Walt Disney World Florida I have to say America does Christmas better. But there a few things that are better in Japan.

Every year Christmas Wishes is the theme of Christmas in Tokyo Disney.

christmasinjapan-tokyodisney-card

I buy the monorail passes because I save them. I’ve tried to get myself out of this because it’s cheaper to suica, but isn’t it so pretty?

christmasinjapan-toystory-christmas

One of the Christmas positives about Japan Disney is how they light up the whole park. The Toy Story area is my favorite.

christmasinjapan-mickey-minnie-2016

In 2016 they were a bit too busy celebrating Tokyo Disney Sea’s 15th anniversary so Christmas didn’t get as fancy.

christmasinjapan-tokyodisneysea-apple-drink

Another Japan Disney positive is their seasonal drinks and foods. I can’t believe America Disney doesn’t jump on more seasonal foods. Mostly all America does is seasonal cupcakes. I’m not a sweet drink fan but this was cute and warm. I went the day after it snowed in Tokyo and it was still cold.

The Italian themed Tokyo Disney Sea all wonderfully lit up near the waterside.

christmasinjapan-disney-christmas-gifts

So many adorable seasonal Disney merch. I only bought a cup this year.

Alice and I went to Tokyo Disney Sea for the day last Spring and it was one of the best Disney Sea trips. The day called for rain and I think that drove away a lot of Disney visitors so we got to ride tons of rides and eat lots of Disney food.

A Mickey-shaped churro?
An edible Sinbad Chandu-tiger tail?

Eat all the fun Disney foods!

Mickey Churros. Delicious and cute! My type of food :bow:

30 years of Disney Sea! Disney Sea is the only privately owned Disney in the world. It also is my favorite.

At a restaurant we got Mickey shaped salmon jelly in our seafood cocktail, was surprisingly delicious.

Disney is great during the day, but cool at night too. No wonder it’s a top date destination.

Spring carnival did a full floral Mickey.

More floral theme.

At sunset, Disney Sea is really so pretty.

To be honest I never was the biggest Disney fan until I went to the Japan ones, I have friends who say the same! Disney Sea is definitely my favorite, but all Disney is so magical.

When you wish upon a star… :stars:
