Christmas Dinner in Japan

Some Christmas cheer and decor.

Gift giving (not a Japanese tradition so everyone is having fun playing 'Secret Santa' gift exchange for the first time.)

Some fancy Christmas decorations to liven up the dining room.
(Bellow) The glorious dining room with Christmas feast laid out, including some lovely Christmas roast beast!


The Inoue sisters lined up eldest to youngest: Kumiko, Naomi, Hiromi, and Aya.


Here I am posing with the gorgeous and captivating Hiromi Inoue.


The adorable little Haruka taking a picture with Sayaka.

A Christmas hug from the wife.


The arrival. Here we are arriving for the Christmas party. Here is Sayaka entering the front gate to the Inoue Estate. Yes, it has its very own front gate! Very nice.






Off yoner is the Tea Ceremony house. It's a seperate building in the middle of the Japanese garden in front of the Inoue's lovely estate.


A mansion is actually hiding behind this Japanese garden: believe it or not. A nice shiny reflection of the Japanese garden and evening sky.
