Caretta Christmas Illumination 2012 at Shiodome, TokyoSeason Greeting’s to all, With Christmas round the corner, it’s that time of the year to be merry and joyous. Folks in Tokyo can enjoy the spirit of the season by seeing the multiple illumination events happening around town. I was lucky to have been able to see this years “Caretta Christmas Illumination 2012″ hosted at the basement plaza of Caretta Shiodome which features a vast ocean of LED lights, while 3D projectors are used to illuminate and animate the walls of the shopping center.

It is a mesmerizing show of light and music that symbolises the Christmas season making it probably the best show in Tokyo in my opinion. I managed to film some of the illumination light up event which happens every 15 or 30 minutes and lasts around 5 minutes+. Hope you enjoy!
