Yokohama is Japan's most prominent port. When Japan opened its borders to foreigners in 1854, Yokohama became a major trade hub and also the place where the 1st foreigners settled in and created a community in Japan. Today, Yokohama is a vast and populous suburb of Tokyo. The reason we visited was much to do about food!
I had heard from many people that the Chinese food in Yokohama is some of the best in Japan and I was eager to fill my belly while investigating these claims. Hiro's parents were willing to join this adventure and took us to their favourite Chinese restaurant in the area. I am so glad that they did because there are over 300 Chinese restaurants in Yokohama......300!! I would have been so terribly lost and confused had Hiro and I been left to our own devices.
The restaurant of choice was Manchinro, with a heritage over over 110 years; established in Yokohama in 1892.

When we stepped out of the restaurant, night had drawn in on the bay. Hiro's time to chase light and shadow like ghosts and fireflies.
