まだ11月もはじめ、というのに、日本[にほん]ではもうクリスマスケーキの予約[よやく] (= reservation)が始[はじ]まりました。
It is still the beginning of November, but there are ads of Christmas cakes everywhere in Japan now!
As I wrote this before, Japanese Christmas cakes are quite different from those of the Western countries. The above photo shows a catalogue of Japanese Christmas cakes. If you want to know the latest trend of Christmas cakes in Japan, please access to this site in Asahi Shimbun Newspaper. There look all so pretty!
