Chinese New Year in Yokohama

横浜 (Yokohama) is where the main China Town is in 東京 (Tōkyō). Well technically its not in Tokyo. But its within commuting distance. Some friends and I went to go check out the Chinese New Years festivities. We had some good food and watched the dragons collect money from the local businesses. It felt pretty similar in size to the same celebration in San Francisco. We spent a few hours there and then went home. It was also the first days of the Corona virus. Japan had a few cases but it was nothing huge yet. But already people in Tokyo were starting to get worried.
