Last December, J. and I took a base tour to Lake Miyagase for their annual Christmas tree lighting. The small town is covered in lights and the highlight of the evening is lighting the main tree. The Japanese people might not celebrate Christmas, but they sure know how to decorate for it!

If you are in the area, I highly recommend going to this event. It was a great way to kick off the Christmas season and get into the Christmas spirit!
