Christmas in Yokohama's China town

(December 24, 2013)

In the afternoon of sunny Christmas eve, I went first to China town, which is the largest one in East Asia. Just a few minutes walk from there will take you to "Motomachi", a fashionable shopping area. On the day, there was a Santa Claus inviting strolling shoppers to sit besides him for a photograph, and asking them, quite appropriately, for a donation to the victims of a devastating typhoon in the Philippines. Lastly, I headed for Yokohama port where two ocean liners were berthed at the international passenger terminal preparing for one-night Christmas cruises.    


Next day on December 25, I visited the same places again but at night.
