Saturday afternoon Dave and I walked around the area of Tokyo near the New Sanno Hotel. The New Sanno Hotel is on the southwest side of Tokyo. It is located near Ebisu and Roppongi Hills. Both areas have Christmas Markets I wanted to visit.
We went to Ebisu first and ate lunch at the Sapporo Beer Station.
Both the beer and my sandwich were delicious.
After lunch, we walked around the Christmas Market in the plaza. It was pretty small, but cute!
I loved the “Make it Happy” theme!
The tree and chandelier in the plaza were impressive!!
The chandelier is the feature of the Baccarat Eternal Light illumination. I can only imagine how beautiful it would look at night. The chandelier has 8,472 pieces of crystal!
After visiting Ebisu Garden Place, we hopped on the train and went two stops to Roppongi Hills. On the upper level was the German themed Christmas Market. It was a little bigger than the Ebisu Market and much more crowded! There were lines just to enter the stores!
On the lower level was a British Invasion Festival. Talk about a cultural afternoon! Germany and Britain while walking around Japan!
My favorite was the IPA craft beer option. Even if it was a Japanese sized pour!
We walked around the garden to enjoy the last of the fall foliage.
Potato chip trees!
The highlight of our day was seeing different pet owners posing their puppies and rabbits for photos. Kawaii!! They brought us happy thoughts of Hannah B.
It was such a nice afternoon, we decided to walk back to the New Sanno and get ready for the holiday party.
