Holiday of lights

Went with a new friend to look at the holiday lights in Roppongi - at Tokyo Midtown and nearby Roppongi Hills. The former's space agey "illuminations" are a destination, and we were lucky to spend only 20 minutes queuing: it can take over an hour, and definitely isn't worth it. A street full of luxury brand stores at the Hills has pleasantly garlanded trees, and the Tokyo Tower in the distance joined the festivities, too. But nothing looked like Christmas until we found the lights around the little pond next to Roppongi Hills. Like a big wreath. Merry merry!
