Christmas Lights in Caretta, Shiodome (汐留)

PB300005 Caretta at Shiodome is a upscale shopping mall with quite a few nice restaurants including a Spanish tapas place and a theatre where they currently put on a Japanese version of "Wicked". It seems like every Christmas they put literally thousands of lights, decorating the entrance. The lights are not static either, every half an hour or so there is a show with the lights dancing to the music and changing color based on the theme of the show.



PB300015 Inside of the building is also adorned by multiple Christmas trees, each with a theme. This one is from the top (46th floor I believe) which you can get to with a really fast elevator while you watch the lights below get smaller and smaller. There is a small observatory for checking out the buildings down below but it is really small. The best part of this floor is the restaurants here which have better views but of course are on the pricey side.
