After a six-year hiatus, the Japanese have returned to their traditional backyard, and they are planning to spend Christmas Day with their family.
The news comes as a surprise to many who were expecting a more subdued Christmas, even though Japan is one of the richest nations in the world.
The new home of the Japanese is in an old brick mansion in the old town of Kobe, located on the banks of the Yamada River.
The home is currently under construction, with the opening date being announced on December 15.
The construction is being led by a group of local firms, which are building the new house with a view to being completed by the end of 2020.
The house will have two levels, a main room with three rooms, a dining room and a living area, as well as an open kitchen.
There will be a living room, a bathroom and an entryway that will be separated by a concrete slab.
The exterior will be decorated with Japanese kimonos and Japanese flags, and the interior will be covered in a Japanese style blanket, which the Japanese will use for their holidays.
The garden is being planted with Japanese flowers, as is the kitchen.
The group of architects is also working on a roof and other architectural features.
It will take four years to complete the building, which is expected to cost over a billion dollars.
The Japanese are the world’s fourth-largest economy, after China, the United States and India.
It has a GDP of nearly $100 billion.
In a country where the traditional holidays of Christmas and Hanukkah are still celebrated on December 25, this is an unprecedented development.
In the past few years, the celebrations have been replaced with more commercial events, with restaurants and bars becoming a regular feature.
A number of Japanese companies have announced their plans to visit the newly opened house.
The owner of the property is also planning to open a restaurant.
“In the past, I thought that we would just do something for the holidays and have the traditional Japanese holidays,” said Takashi Tsuchiya, a real estate broker who is involved in the project.
“But we realized that it was a new idea, so we thought about what we could do to make it special for the whole Japanese population.”
It is hoped that this will help boost tourism in the area.
“It is a big project for Kobe, so it will help to revive the city,” he added.
