Travel Tips for Yokohama

Lovely Tulips during the Spring!

by yen_2

When you're around Yokohama in the first week of the Spring, try to see the lovely tulips along the National Stadium in Kanai Station, they have such adorable different kinds of colors of tulips which I had a nice time taking pix in it! I used to walk through the Park along the Stadium near the Kanai Station, bringing my headphone and walking around is one that I really miss in here. Watching people walking around, which they don't care what are you doing in there too. Watching the doves flying and eating those feeds I would give is one of the wonderful memory I had!

Yamashita Park

by crazyguitar

It´s nice to have a walk along Yamashita Park. Depending on the season you can find a different colorful place: the flowers are the responsible, nice park, flowers... Have a break an sit on a bench or on the grass.

Nice Memories in Nice Bay City

by traveldream

I like this city. The bay area is very nice, there was no traffic jam, and here I became new friends with my online buddy, who turned out to be a very nice host. We share good times together travelling in a few places inside and outside Yokohama.

The Minato Mirai 21 area consists of high, modern buildings such as Landmark Tower, the highest building in Japan, where from its 69th floor we can see the 360-degree view of Yokohama bay area.

In Yamashita Park/Port area you can watch the ships sailing in and out of the harbour and seagulls flying overhead. It is a nice place to be. You can also go to a nearby cafe for a cup of coffee while enjoying the view.

There is also a park called Sankeien".

There is also Chinatown, said to be one of the largest Chinatown in the world. But in my opinion Yokohama's Chinatown is not a "real" Chinatown, especially because prices are expensive there. So it is not a place where real Chinese community live, but more of a Chinatown built for visitors.

"The Port where US Navy Came"

In 1852, US Navy, led by Matthew C. Perry, embarked from Norfolk, Virginia for Japan, in command of a squadron in search of a Japanese trade treaty. Aboard a black-hulled steam frigate, he ported Mississippi, Plymouth, Saratoga, and Susquehanna at Uraga Harbor near Edo (now: Tokyo) on July 8, 1853, and was met by representatives of the Tokugawa Shogunate who told him to proceed to Nagasaki, where there was limited trade with the Netherlands and which was the only Japanese port open to foreigners at that time. Perry refused to leave and demanded permission to present a letter from President Millard Fillmore, threatening force if he was denied. Japan had for centuries shunned modern technology, and the Japanese military forces could not resist Perry's modern weaponry; the "black ships" would then become, in Japan, a symbol of threatening Western technology and colonialism.

The Japanese government had to accept Perry's coming ashore if it was to avoid a naval bombardment. Perry proceeded ashore at Kurihama, (near modern-day Yokosuka) on July 14, presented the letter to delegates present and left for the Chinese coast, promising to return for a reply.
