I remember one trip to Tokyo at Christmas.
The lights all the lights everywhere and this song.
JR Tokai Express put out a series of very charming commercials from 1988-2000.
Wonderful small stories of people trying to get home
to see their love ones for the holidays.
The song is by Tatsuro Yamashita and first appeared in 1983.
There are many Christmas carols and hymns that I love but I always listen to
this song and series first as they always put me in such a Christmas mood.
I hope I can find and post the video of the Christmas lights around Tokyo
with this song playing in the background.
And just because I can here is your mid week pretty.
The best gifts under the tree waiting for Santa to come
with gifts (chkikin' strips) for the gud dugs !
