Colourful Yurakucho 有楽町
It was in Yurakucho that we had to transit in order to go from Toyosu to Akihabara and other destinations. The problem was that all we did was transit there, but never actually gotten out of the station grounds to see the area. In the end, we decided to finally see what Yurakucho is all about and we were amazed.
The streets were covered in glittering Christmas lights and the gardens and its buildings were festively decorated. The lights from the department stores that surrounds the Yurakucho train station illuminates brightly and creates a romantic atmosphere amidst the crowded of its populace.
