Thanksgiving meals in Yokohama

This is not in Tokyo but rather in Yokohama. There is a country club called Yokohama Country and Athletics club which has Thanksgiving dinner every year. There are many foreigners who come and enjoy the delicious turkey and spend time with their family. I go there every year and the food gets better every year. They serve mashed potatoes, roasted turkey but also sometimes roast beef, with a finish with chocolate cake!
