Christmastime in Tokyo.  I strongly recommend it.  It was such a treat to visit this incredible city with my family and explore it together.  Despite the cold, the city was festive and buzzing with hopes for the New Year. 

The Japanese culture places emphasis on ritual and respect, which effectively made each experience special, no matter how small, and reminded me of what AM is all about.

I did my best to narrow down hundreds of images to the ones below to give you a taste of Tokyo and, hopefully, inspire you a bit.

Wishing you a wonderful start to the New Year! xx
