Day Four

Yokohama Chinatown


It was supposed to rain a lot today, so we adjusted the goal to just having delicious Chinese food at Chinatown, Yokohama.

Minatomirai, Yokohama

Walking through the station building we came upon an elevator that had an "R" button for "Roof", so we pressed it and went up.

Walking back from lunch we passed a huge sailboat and the lady at the cashiers desk waved us in. Today was the ascension of the Emperor of Japan, which meant access was free!

The "scaffold curse" strikes again, the main temple was under rennovation.
