Happy Holidays from Tokyo

Konichiwa and Happy Holidays from Tokyo! I must admit that I was surprised to learn that Christmas seems as celebrated in Japan as in the United States. I heard Christmas songs as I walked the streets, sat in cafes or browsed in stores. Yet, this is what I love so much about traveling, it often shatters my preconceived notions of a place or people.

Check back in the coming weeks for my impressions about food, fashion, literature, and meditation with zen masters.

May the New Year bring you much peace, good health and success.

  1. @Meghan-I would be surprised by that too, I wouldn't have been expecting Christmas songs in Japan (which is a place I would LOVE to visit).

    Thank you for visiting Reading in Color. I hope to be able to get to my library and read Anahita's Woven Riddle soon :)

    Have a lovely New Year!
