The Caretta Shiodome complex is one of many outstanding Christmas illuminations taking place throughout the city. It is open from November 19th to February 14, 2016 and starts at 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. nightly. The show consists of more than 250,000 LED lights that are used in a light and music show every 20 minutes lasting six minutes. This year's theme is the Canyon d'Azur or "Canyon of Blue," and the experience is a wonderful sea of blue lights.

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.
