Chinese New Year ＠元町中華街、横浜 （１）
A day for couples, and for 2010 the day Chinese New Year fell on. Since hating on the commercialism of V-Day is apparently passe, let us move straight on to the dish of the (yester)day:
The Plan – meet @ Motomachi-Chuukagai Station for half 5. Yokohama’s Chuukagai (“Chinatown”) is pretty famous; having visited once prior during daylight hours, it is far more magical when the lights go out. So there was meant to be a parade. Operative word there. Suffice to say, all did not go as planned – we glimpsed the tail end of the celebrations – however much merriment was still had (in which our blogger discovered that taking purikura whilst slightly inebriated makes it way more fun, and that, no matter how hard she tries, she will always fail at taiko arcade games)!
