A Visual Diary of my travels mostly in Japan, but also around the world including the small details we sometimes overlook

There was a statue for each year of the Chinese Zodiac. This is the mouse.
This is the Tiger. I was born in the year of the Tiger!
The Dragon is visible on the bottom left.
Here is the Snake on the bottom right.
Some steamed pork buns with a sesame bun. The pork buns in this Chinatown are supposedly the best, unfortunately, I don't eat pork so I didn't try one. Now, if there was one with vegetables or chicken I would have tried one!
You can't call it a china town without some Peking Duck!
This is the Red Star cafe. They fill a cup with vanilla ice cream, tapioca and tea like milk tea or Matcha tea. It was delicious! They have many types of desserts here so don't worry if you aren't a big fan of Bubble Tea!
Kobe Chinatown was small, especially compared to the Chinatown in Yokohama. But, that doesn't mean it's any less interesting! It makes up for it with the great atmosphere and food!!
