In the air there's a feeling of Christmas

This weekend I travelled out to Takarazuka once more and caught the tail-end of the Christmas gathering before heading out to Kyoto on Saturday morning to meet Kenny for some Christmas Shopping. It was a very Christmas-y weekend. Here's some glimpses of the hints of Christmas we came across....


Sorry, I know it's a little blurry.... but check out the work uniforms that they have to wear! Ouch.


The huge tree in the Kyoto train station....


Elvis gets into the Japanese Christmas spirit of things...



Kyoto gets dressed up and into the Christmas spirit.

In other news, it hailed here today for about 20 minutes this afternoon. It was very very cold. On the way home from Church, I saw snow on the mountains....
While we were in Kyoto we stopped in at a Foriegn foods store and in honour of SinterKlaas I purchased spiced Gouda cheese, pumpernickel bread, and Stroopwaffels. Mmmm.... hooray for dutch foods!
