A two million dollar golden Christmas tree goes on display in Tokyo for the Christmas holiday season on Tuesday.

The Golden Christmas Tree made from 12 kilograms of pure gold was unveiled at Ginza Tanaka jewelry store. Known for its lavish promotional tie-ups with designers and corporations, this year's holiday season saw the jewelry company working with renowned Japanese flower arrangement artists for the one-of-kind Christmas tree.

The Golden Christmas Tree stands at 2.4 meters tall with over 100 ribbons, orchids and hearts decorating it, also made of gold. The value of the gold used for the tree is approximately 700-thousand U.S. dollars.

Even without a price tag, the dramatic display itself was enough to catch the eyes of passers-by. The gilded tree will be on display from now through Christmas day.
