Tree-mendous Christmas

Christmas Tree at White Kitte

The iconic central atrium of the Marunouchi Kitte shopping complex is decked out with a real, 13-metre-tall Christmas tree brought to the capital all the way from the village of Tsumagoi in Gunma prefecture. It’s covered in white dust, making the tree look like it’s been snowed on, but you can also see it lit up with rainbow lights that synchronise with festive music between 12noon and 10pm daily.

Grand Prince Hotel Takanawa has a modern take on its Christmas tree this year. It’s made with takeakari by Chikaken, a company that specialises in creating these bamboo lanterns. The tree is encased inside a dome and surrounded by decorations – all made out of bamboo, of course.
