It’s been a while since I’ve updated with sightseeing pictures. Well, here is part 2 of my Naka Ward walk back in July. This time, it’s Yamate. Yamate is the old Yokohama city centre, and is also where many foreigners lived a century or so ago. The architecture of the area is very western. You wouldn’t even know you’re in Japan by the looks of everything. Many of the buildings are quite big houses. I was able to visit one and take a look inside. Yamate is situated at the top of a hill, so it has some great views. So, let’s take a look at some of Yamate.
First, I went up to Yamate from Motomachi, after visiting Chinatown.
I passed a Mormon temple at the top of this hill, where a group of Mormons were talking with people. But I wasn’t there for religious discussions, I was sightseeing. So, I went on, and there were some really big houses in the area. And Berrick Hall is one of them. It’s in Motomachi Park. Let’s take a look.
After Berrick Hall, I walked down the streets, passed the foreigner’s cemetery, and here are the pictures.
Next up will be a lot of pictures from Minato-no-mieru Oka Koen (or Harbour View Park) in Yamate.
