Yokohama Chinatown, Japan

I went to Chinatown in Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture. Yokohama Chinatown is the largest Chinatown not only Japan, but also Asia. Chinese trade merchant arrived at Yokohama in 1859. They built school, community center and many facilities in Chinatown. My mom loves Chinese food. So she took me there when I was a child. I like to have steamed meat bun while walking around Chinatown.

Matcha au let and matcha kitkat

It's very cold in Tokyo now. It's good time to drink hot matcha au let for break. Matcha au let tasts sweet. We usually don't put sugar in Japanese tea. I sometimes see Japanese tea with sugar is sold at a shop in overseas. But we drink Japanese tea with non-sugar. So matcha au let is a special.
