A Holy Night in Tokyo

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008



It’s Christmas time. One of the few times I wish I was not in Japan. But alas, I will be spending time here over the “holidays.” For those of you who wish to spend a holy night at a church, below is a list of churches, both multi-cultural and Japanese. I am sure most will have some kind of Christmas service. For those only attending for Christmas, it may seem a bit hypocritical, but better than drinking at a nearby izakaya I guess. So here is my list.

Aoyama Church
Azabu Catholic Church
Azabu Kasumicho Church
First Church of Christ, Scientist Tokyo
Franciscan Chapel Center
Gloria Chapel
Harajuku Church
Hijirigaoka Church
Mitake Church
Naka Shibuya Church
Roppongi Lutheran Church
SDA Tokyo Central Church
St. Alban’s Anglican-Episcopal Church
St. Dominic Catholic Shibuya Church
Tokyo Union Church
Tokyo Yamate Churc
Toriizaka Church the United Church of Christ in Japan

roppongi hils Illumination at Roppongi Hills

Tokyo is ablaze with Christmas illumination at this time of the year. One of the most famous ones is the area around Roppongi Hills. The ones along Keyakizaka-dori (road towards Azabu-Juban) are especially nice. It got off rather early on November 5th and will last till December 25th.

The trees near the main entrance (66 Plaza) will also be lit with red and auburn lights. Also, a small pond and garden (Mouri Teien) near the arena will be decorated. Definitely worth a look.

When: Until December 25
Where: Roppongi Hills and surrounding areas
Time: 17:00-23:00 (Mouri Teien and Keyakizaka-dori)/ 17:00-24:00 66 Plaza
