Christmas is coming to Center Minami (south) in northern Yokohama. This photo was taken on December 7, 2018, showing a church-looking wedding hall.
Local nursery school kids participating in a disaster prevention drill on December 10, 2018. What were they looking at so eagerly? It's a portable toilet with a plastic bag. The kids were watching water inside the bag become solid as soon as a coagulant was added.
Sorry but it's a toilet again. Local volunteers participated in a practice of setting up a "new" make-shift toilet for use at evacuation shelters. What's special about this new toilet? It will be placed right over a manhole and water from a nearby swimming pool on a rooftop will be used to "flush".

Soon after Christmas, it's time for the New Year's preparation. At the entrance of a shopping mall (the left photo), you can see a typical decoration for the season.
