Buying Christmas Trees in Kobe 2017

If you are in the market for a Christmas Tree to liven up your holiday season you with trim and presents, you are in luck. Stocks are very limited so, don’t delay!  The trees are a bit shorter than you might get used to but they have very nice shapes and I am certain they will bring you a Merry Christmas.

Real Christmas Trees


Ikea

The local Ikea  is a reasonably good source for trees and decorations.  Best of all, they offer live trees!

Home Centers

Around the holiday season you can find real (if you are REALLY lucky, call first!) or artificial trees, lights, displays and other assorted holiday decorations at many of these stores around town. What is in each one is impossible to say, but its worth a shot! In general, the larger the home center, the better luck you will have finding a real tree at it.

Artificial Trees


If the options above are sold out or are simply unwilling to deal with pine needles there is always the artificial option.

Foreign Buyers Club (Online) 

We probably dont have to tell Kobe about FBC,but just in case… FBC isBilled as “Food and Fun from home – direct to your door – anywhere in Japan;” this online international grocery store has been delivering the goods to the broader expat community in Japan since 1988.  They have “pine trees” in various sizes, but they sell out quickly.

You can get trees, decorations and paper here but you will find a small selection to choose from.  On the plus side, they also stock lawn reindeer and tacky giant lawn Santa.
