On the morning of October 1, 1949, on the stones of Tiananmen Square, Mao Zedong announced the creation of the People’s Republic of China. Since then, Chinese citizens have enjoyed a “Golden Week” of celebrations from the day. To mark the event in Japan, the historic Chinese community in Yokohama’s Chinatown are holding a parade and lion dance through the area — with several restaurants and stores selling special goods to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the occasion.
