Valentine’s Day, February 14.
It is known in Japan as a day for women to express their affection and send chocolate to the men they are in love with.
However, some not only enjoy giving men chocolate, but to friends, family, or even themselves as well. Valentine’s Day in Japan is enjoyed by reaffirming ties with loved ones with the help of some sweet stimulation.
Department stores around Ikebukuro Station this time of the year are crowded with people who come for gifts such as fancy chocolate and chocolate that is available only for a limited time.
“Valentine Fantasy 2017” will be held in Ikebukuro as everyone’s expectations for Valentine’s Day are running high.
No matter how cold it is outside; friends, lovers, and family feel a deep sense of warmth when they huddle to take pictures in front of objects shaped like the heart mark, which is the symbol of the city of Strasbourg in France. There are many performances by street entertainers as well as events such as a photo contest where participants can win luxurious prizes.
Enjoy Valentine’s Day to the fullest in Ikebukuro, which is full of items that stir the souls of girls!
