We are finally in the holiday season. Towns and streets are covered in beautiful winter illuminations. They look very brilliant in the cold air.

Today's Japanese phrase is: “Totemo kirabiyaka desu!" = There look very brilliant! ("totemo" = very, "kirabiyaka"= brilliant, ".. desu" = it is../they are..)

This is a great phrase to describe the holiday illuminations as you stroll on a nice evening. Try it out as it will surely promote the holiday spirit!

Stay safe and enjoy the holiday season of Japan!
