Loved up at Christmastime
Christmastime is a great time to be dating, especially in Japan, it seems.
The city has gone all out to make the season as romantic as possible for guys and girls dating.
Tokyo Tower is one of the most popular dating spots for loved-up couples. Every year, in the run-up to Christmas, a heart-shaped illumination on its observation deck is lit every night.
Japanese tradition says that lovers who stand beneath the illumination when it is turned on must pledge their eternal love to each other.
The city also boasts a "love tree" where lovers can tie a ribbon as a sign of their affections for each other.
Masahiro Yamamoto, 23, and his girlfriend were one of the happy couples at the tree. He told Reuters: "When I tied this ribbon, I made a wish that our love would last forever."
