Christmas in Tokyo

Christmas in Tokyo

Tokyo lights up all over for Christmas with some pretty beautiful lighting displays.   I am sure there are varying opinions on this but I do like how Japan does it.    I only wish they would turn the lights on about 30 minutes earlier when the ambient light and the light from the Christmas Lights are at the perfect balance for a great shot.   Here are a few shots I captured over the week.
