Chinatowns in all big cities are pretty much alike, but the one in Yokohama is very colorful at night, just like most of urban Japan, and much more so than the DC Chinatown. Here’s a prime example:
When I was in the station at Takadanobaba in Tokyo, this was the sign I saw above the stairs leading to the platform.
Spaceship or building? Yoyogi Secondary Gymnasium, near Yoyogi Park.
This is mainly a test to see how well my main site here ties into my new Tumblr blog…
Once again, I’m going to try to limit my photos per post so that I might make more posts (and stave off scrolling boredom). It’s not gone well so far, I keep finding more pictures that I want to post all at once!
Okay, even though I’m no longer over there, I still have a lot of things that I did in Japan that I haven’t posted about, so once more into the breech!
Just a quick aside, I wanted to show just one small thing that was affected by the horrible earthquake and tsunami of 2011.
As promised, here are some more pictures from the Asakusa matsuri parade of historic (and fictional) people in the clothes from those times.
