[Puzzling Tuesday] Suspicious Santa

Japan is apparently a great place to go to for Christmas spirit, no matter how superficial the celebrations may be. I’ve written about how fun Christmas in Japan is here, but since then I’ve taken great joy in photographing the little intricacies of Japanese Christmas celebrations. I share them with you all this month. Hooray!


I’ve seen a lot of weird Santas in my time but this is probably the weirdest, from the suit just hanging off him to the polka-dot sneakers. Look closely and you can see my giggling face taking the photo.

Spotted during my year in Tokyo during the holiday season for 2006.
