- Guests may cheer out the old year and celebrate the New Year with panoramic views of Tokyo Bay and the fireworks by Tokyo Disneyland.
- At midnight tonight is the day that the new year dawns and the old year dies.
- But in this part of the world Christmas marks the end of the work year, the end of the academic year and the end of the old year.
