Day 19: The Christmas House

Tonight was a visit to the Christmas House.

Most people do not decorate the outside of their houses for Christmas. There are however, a few exceptions.

In Ishikawa there is a house known as the "Christmas House."
For 11 months it is just a regular house. In December, however, it becomes a cafe all decked out for Christmas.

The pictures don't really do it justice.

Well, people actually travel a couple hours just to gaze at it's brilliance.
It was just a 3 minute car ride for us, so I guess we're lucky!

Also the place of the only public manger scene that I am aware of. (and yes, Emi is holding the cow in her lap)
