The Christmas holiday illuminations across Tokyo are incredible, and this year's installation in Roppongi Hills was no exception. The theme for 2015 was Artelligent Christmas, and a breathtaking variety of illuminations were present across the grounds of the Roppongi Hills complex. Most notable were the beautiful garden of lights in the Mori Garden, the Galaxy Illumination along Keyakizaka, and the Airy Walk exhibit within the shopping complex itself. The Starry Sky Illumination in the Mori Tower provided a fun interactive exhibit in addition to the awesome views of the city and of Tokyo Tower. One can only imagine what amazing displays next year will bring.

I first visited Japan in 2001 and since then have returned many times. With the efficiency and reliability of its transportation, the graciousness of the people, and the dedication to quality in food and service, Japan has been my standard for modern travel convenience. Every return has reminded me of the remarkable depth and diversity of the country with no two trips being alike, despite retracing steps through familiar neighborhoods. The constant dynamism of the urban centers combined with the emphasis on tradition, sense of aesthetics, and attention to detail make it one of the most exciting places to visit and an inexhaustible land for novel experiences, modern and ancient.
