`Tis the season to be illuminated.
As soon as Halloween is over, Japan decks out the lights for nationwide night illuminations.
One of the most spectacular is in Kobe – the Luminaire.
All big cities cover trees and walkways with lights.
Tokyo has a kind of fairy-light arms race from November through to the following year.
The big ones can be found in Shibuya, Shinjuku, Roppongi… and almost every station has their own display.
They are a romantic date idea.
But also every other couple in Japan had the same idea… so expect crowds!
