Flashback: Minato Mirai at Golden Week 2005 – Part 3

And now for part 3 of the Minato Mirai tour.  This time, I walked around to Kisha-michi Promenade, to Akarenga, near Cosmo World, then over to Rinko Park on the eastern end of Minato Mirai.  Finally, I headed over to Yokohama Station for dinner with other teachers.  Please read parts 1 and 2.
