I can tell you it was different, more then than now I think. We had put a tree up, of course, in our office at the command I was attached too, the Naval Supply Depot, Yokosuka. The last one aboard ship we didn't have a tree, but had fashioned one for everybodies Christmas cards - there used to be a photo of me there, but it's been lost I think.
The decoration of buildings and public places was different, and it probably was with good reason, there aren't a great number of Christians in Japan so it's more of a civil holiday.
