One year ago I was visiting Seoul’s equivalent to Akihabara (Yongsan), spend some time at Deoksugung Palace and Seodaemun Prison, found out about traditional homes in Namsangol Hanok Village and concluded the day in Insadong.
This year, with me staying home in Tokyo, I went to another illumination event: “Ruby Christmas” in Omotesando Hills. Omotesando Hills is a window shopping paradise – I doubt there’s a bargain somewhere. Of course they had to choose something classy for their Christmas decoration: Two big chandeliers and a “ruby” with a mirror ball inside it. Sometimes the light would change and everyone would stand still to watch.
It was over soon enough and they obviously didn’t want to distract the customers too much.
