Merry Christmas/Hanukkah From Japan

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE ! I HOPE YOU HAD A PEACEFUL & HAPPY HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!

So Christmas went and New Years is coming coming fast ! Our Christmas here in Tokyo went very well with delicious Christmas chicken that we reserved from KFC before and with a tasty Christmas cake from Baskin Robins that we got on Christmas eve.

In Japan two most important things to have on your Christmas table are chicken and cake.

At baskin Robins we could not get a christmas cake since all were reserved but we did get a normal cake from there that was great !

There was a long line at 24th as well

This is the normal Christmas box that you get when you order a Christmas cake.

Luckily we had our Christmas chicken reserved from KFC november already so we got the set that we wanted. I have to say that I love KFC in Japan ! In that box was the perfect amount for us as well.

I actually forgot to take a photo of the chicken because I was starving.

But this the cake we ate.

Now we are in a hurry with packing and getting ready for our trip to Aomori, to be exact Hirosaki city. We’ll be staying there about a week. Today we will go there from Tokyo station with a night buss and we will be coming back at 3rd of January in a Shinkansen (bullet train).

I’ll have my camera with me so I will try to get some beautiful winter landscape photo as well as photos of the Hirosaki castle.

Also I will be updating at least a little from my ipad while I am there! but for now Have a great week and HAppy new year 2012 for everyone ! thank you so much for following my life in Japan so far !

walk at Harajuku and Omotesando

Took a little walk at Harajuku and omotesando since I haven’t taken photos there lately and of course I wanted to get some shots of the beautiful Christmas illuminations at omotesando.

When we got there we were starving, so we took a quick stop at Wolfgang puck express restaurant. I love that place since it is so cheap that it is almost shocking. Great onion rings and burgers ! I recommend lunch time menu for everyone (lunch end at 5pm)

Here are few photos of the delicious burgers and onion rings we had.

The famous Christmas lights.
I’d just like to say that one reason why I wasn’t pleased with these photos to come was because I could not get up to the walkway to take photos since all were closed and police were all over the place!
