It is Chinese New Year week.  In Yokohama there is one of the largest China Town in Asia and they celebrate this time. I'll upload more photos of the celebration later(^_^;).

A lion coming in a restaurant and looking for a new year gift for him(her?).
Many of the shops & restaurants in China town prepare these gifts for lion(s) because the lions are a symbol of prosperity & strength. If they accept gifts, it'll give the shop/restaurant a good fortune of the year.

A lion has found a gift and is trying to eat it.
Usually this type of lion dance is performed with 2 people. In this picture the person doing the fore legs(^_^;) got up on the shoulder of the person doing the back and stood up. This requires a kind of gymnastics skill.

Just past the Warwickshire Museum. Still in Market Place. Swan Street up ahead.

Caffe Nero at the end of the square.

On the left is Piccadilly Cards & Gifts at 23 and 25 Market Place. Which is Grade II* listed.

In 1781 in might have been part of the Market Place (the actual Market Hall is nearby in Market Place).

Circa 1634, 3 storeys, altered and restored at various times. Timber framing is exposed on two upper floors and although considerable replacements have been made much of the original work remains particularly to west elevation facing New Street. Second storey is jettied and projecting joists have moulded ends. Four alternating large and small gable heads with chevron and geometrical framing. First storey has alternating bays of chevron and close square framing. First floor is jettied as second floor. Fairly satisfactory plate glass shopfronts and one C19 pair of Gothic windows and door. Remainder of ground floor is stucco. West elevation (to New Street) is similar, but with one large and two small gable heads; a greater proportion of this timber framing is original. On corner of New Street are three crude carved heads of considerable interest. C18 sashes in cased frames throughout on upper floors. Restored roof of old tiles and machine tiles. Interior: plaster overmantel with royal arms of Charles I and date ? 1634.
