An old thatched roof house in Center Kita (north), northern Yokohama

I visited an old thatched roof house near Center Kita (north) station along the Yokohama subway on January 7, 2015.  January 7 happens to be the day when we have rice porridge or congee cooked with seven different kinds of vegetables. This is supposedly meant to keep you from diseases; nowadays people welcome the porridge which is "gentle to the stomach" especially after having heavy meals and a lot of drink during the New Year.
