For the Christmas fans among our Japanese language students, Japan is renowned for its light-ups. Where in Western countries, Christmas is traditionally a time for families to be together and spend time with each other (and New Year’s a time for friends and couples to party together), here in Japan, it’s the other way around. Christmas Eve is hugely celebrated by couples, and who doesn’t love a romantic stroll among the Christmas lights?
For your convenience, Fukuoka Now has put together a list of all the best spots to see some Christmas lights, available on their website. Even if you don’t have a boyfriend or girlfriend, grab a few friends, co-workers, acquaintances or their pets and head over for a beautiful time!
