I love that even in winter, we can still see flowers and such. This was an arrangement that was placed adjacent to the turnstiles at Toyohashi station around Christmas time. This is actually the second of two arrangements, the first of which was displayed from the week preceding to Christmas eve, followed by this one which was displayed until the New Years holidays.
Here’s to hoping that this year will be better than the last.
There’s an interesting illumination display in the shopping center next to Kanayama station.
I’m not sure what the theme is per say, but I imagine that it might be fantasy or something similar.
Regardless, it’s rather unique and incredibly beautiful when lit up at night. In the day, it’s a bit…
Well, you judge for yourself.
Around Obu train station, there are metal rails with sparrow sized metal birds perched on top. I’ve been to the station at least half a dozen times but have only noticed them this morning.
I didn’t see any info about the pieces or about the person(s) that made them. Most people around the station didn’t seem to pay them any mind as well.
However, I thought they were absolutely adorable and had to take a few pictures before heading to my appointment.
Working on Christmas wasn’t too bad this year. On Christmas Eve my coworkers and I had a lovely lunch of chicken, pizza and salad. On Christmas Day, another coworker brought in some cake for everyone to enjoy. When I lived in the States, I couldn’t imagine working on Christmas Day, but after living abroad and by myself for a few years, I really don’t mind.
Have you ever seen a tree decorated with vegetables before? I’ve seen fruit added to trees or the odd popcorn garland, but this is… interesting.
There is a Christmas Village in Nagoya this year. On the way home from hanging out with a few friends, I had a look around. It was cute and a nice little change of pace from the dreariness that is December.
Spent almost all of the three day weekend in bed due to a bad sore throat and cold. My voice still isn’t 100%, but I can speak again, so it’s back to the grind for me.
