Two window cleaners pretending to be Santa Claus and a reindeer are pictured at the DECKS Tokyo Beach shopping mall in Daiba, in Tokyo's Minato Ward, on Dec. 21, 2016. The cleaners, who both work for a building management company that specializes in cleaning high-rise buildings, dressed up in this festive manner in an attempt to entertain customers. The two experienced workers cleaned the windows of a 31-meter-tall building -- which looks out onto Tokyo Bay and Rainbow Bridge -- while swaying on their ropes. A woman in her 50s, who was shopping in the mall at the time, commented, "It was a big surprise to see Santa Claus cleaning the windows!" (Mainichi)
