[quiet knee ☆ cricket] December 15, 2015 16:00

In roof "top island of TAKASHIMAYA Nihombashi Store," we can enjoy fir tree colored by Christmas illuminations now

During period of Christmas illuminations, it is until Friday, December 25


In addition, in "green cafe of the roof," we can enjoy menu reflecting the image of Christmas for a limited time, Danish traditional cake "furubora" & mulled wine set


During period, "star ornament" seems to be presented to 20 first arrival to user of green cafe and can add ornament of star to fir tree with wish on Christmas

Business hours of green cafe were from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and unfortunately it was past business hours when I went. We go early this time


By the way, do you know that elephant has been on the roof of TAKASHIMAYA Nihombashi Store?

It is child elephant "Takako" of Asian elephant which we purchased from the Kingdom of Thailand in 1950.

Approximately 170,000 people seemed to flock on the public first day (Takako moves to Ueno Zoo four years later)
