Here is one of the gates that mark the entrance to Chinatown in Yokohama. They are very colorful, but tend to get lost drowned out by the surrounding buildings.

What can I say - chestnuts - mmmmm. These are roasted in some king of black pebble. I thought at first it was coffee (looked and smelled  the same). These are delicious, but a little expensive. I think anything that comes in a nice package is expensive. It has something to do with the whole gift giving requirement.

Here is a nice golden dragon and my friend Noriko, who was an excellent guide.

Welcome to Chinatown (it might actually say that).

Just a side note: This is the way mail is delivered in Tokyo.

The neon was incredible at night. Is it a Chinese thing or Japanese thing? I guess I'll have to go to China to find out.

More night neon - you really don't get the full effect, but it was really nice.

Get your steaming hot nikuman here! These dough-stuffed-with-mystery-meat treats are called "manapua" in Hawaii.

Just a cool prop at the front gate. There are other such gizmos all over. I just added this to help flavor the page.
