We planed a Christmas illumination meet-up in a row. Last year,we enjoyed walk around Nakanoshimachuo-Kokaido in central Osaka city. There were so nice illumination and mapping on the Nakanoshima Kokaido which is old building built in 1918. We had enjoyed exploring there last year,so wanted to do it in this year as well.  A TB friend Ogechi ( http://www.travbuddy.com/ogster ) Visited in Osaka at that time,and we've been in friends long time via TB. I'm so glad to meet her and spend some times with her!  

We all gathered at Yodoyabashi St. which is closest St. at Nakanoshimachuo-Kokaido.  We wear Christmas headband each is our habbit on this event.

..YES,just in a row second time.haha! But it's very nice walk in crowded place as we could find our group so easily!! Last year,we were like popular by it,but this time wasn't so much:( ...maybe people doesn't care others so much recently...lol  Well,no matter. We were happy enjoying it!

The mapping on Nakanoshimachuo-kokaido is an awesome! Seems like it happen in Osaka castle as well. But osaka castle is not free. Mapping show is about 5min,worth to stop by there watching out. There is a story and they use this old buildding very well I think. We walk around river side,it's rose garden of Osaka city,at that time is not a season of rose so they put illumination of rose...I prefer to a decoration of last year though... Anyway,we return to Yodoyabashi St. then went to the Shabushabu restaurant for dinner! But still had some time for the our reservation.

We stop by at batting center and prikura!  

Shabushabu is a kind of Japanese cuisine. I love it much! That restaurant has good deal for it as we could eat & drink as much as we want for 2 hours bee,pork and alcohol!  Sometimes we had to be careful that people could't eat something by their religion. This time pork is it. We immediately changed a course plan and went well.

It might be not "Christmas". As you know that Japanese has buddhism or Shinto. But we love to celebrate Christmas as well...it look like just an event though,to respect an other religion is good too!

We have two big religion in Japan. Buddhisum and Shinto. But I would say that we don't think much religion like other nationalities,this is why we do celebrate any other religion like "Christmas" ;) after 5days of Christmas,we do celebrate New Yrar as Shinto! :)
