Christmas season is knocking at the door. Historic old towns of Switzerland are filled with romantic twinkling lights, and wooden huts and tent stores are bustling with people enjoying shopping. This year, a wintertime tradition in Switzerland, is coming to Chiba City! The market will sell not only melted Raclette cheese, festive sweets, Swiss wine, and other Swiss delicacies; Swiss brands will also present a series of items with a sustainable touch. Visitors can enjoy a variety of fun activities such as alphorn and jazz concerts, photo shootings with Santa Claus, a workshop to make your very own eco-friendly SIGG bottle, and more! Please come and experience the feeling of Switzerland in Makuhari.
