While the youngsters might not be aware of the previous Germany-Japan strong relations, Germany's (and other European countries actually) influence to Japan is still visible. In fact for 8 years now, Roppongi Hills have been celebrating a German-style Christmas Market (see here for more info). I wasn't really aware of it but Kaila and I were around the area for Kyary Kyary Pamyu exhibit and we've pass thru the event. When we were hungry, we decided to check it out.
I'm sharing this video for you to watch since it was shot in Japan, specifically in Shibuya. You might be interested in checking it out!
Awesome street artists
