“ A temporary skating rink in front of Tokyo Station was officially opened to the public on Nov 30, marking the first time such an attraction has been featured in the iconic district's annual Christmas festivities.

In the nearby Marunouchi Naka-dori street, a small Christmas market, street piano and fluffy benches flanked by dazzling trees have further transformed the area into a winter wonderland.

This year, visitors can also ride a merry-go-round, take selfies at selected spots and try their hand at a ring-toss game for free. “

Well done, TMG; these are great for families and couples; also, that Christmas spirit is ignited and puts us all in a good mood; and if we’re all in a good mood, the world is a better place; Merry Christmas. :)

“ The environmentally friendly synthetic ice skating rink on Gyoko-dori, an avenue linking Tokyo Station with the Imperial Palace, will operate daily from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. during the event period, with advance reservations available online, according to the organizers. “

Organized chaos. :)
