A Tokyo December

Even though it's so cold outside that I can hardly stand it, this is still one of my favorite seasons in Tokyo. I've always loved seeing the lights all around the city, even when I was visiting San Francisco in winter with friends, as a college student. Tokyo definitely doesn't hold back in the holiday decorations department; twinkling lights are strung up among branches of trees lining the street, little carpets of light cover the ground, trees and ornaments decorate the insides of department stores. Holiday music is in the air. Sometimes, I just want to curl up warm indoors with a hot cup of tea, but then sometimes, it's all worth it to make my way out into the beautiful night.
