Actress Koyuki and actor Toshiaki Karasawa officiate at the light-up ceremony for the "Starlight Garden" display at Tokyo Midtown on Thursday night. Midtown's spectacular illumination displays have been so popular in the past, especially on Christmas eve, that authorities sometimes have to limit the numbers of people coming to view the scene at certain times. Karasawa, 52, and Koyuki, 38, are starring in the film, "Sugihara Chiune," about the Japanese diplomat, sometimes referred to as the the Schindler of Japan, and his life leading up to and after his decision to issue over 2,000 visas to Jewish refugees in Kaunas, Lithuania, to save them from the Nazis. The movie opens Dec 5.© Japan Today
