Yokohama Archives of History (横浜開港資料館)

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

Yokohama Archives of History is a museum located close to Yamashita Park in Yokohama which is open to the general public and collects materials relating to the history of Yokohama. It holds in excess of about 250,000 documents related to such topics as Yokohama’s history and culture, the harbor and the port and the economy from the end of the Edo period to the early Showa period. It plays a role to communicate the history of modern Yokohama to future generations. The “Tamakusu tree” in the courtyard, managed to survive even though it was damaged by fire and an earthquake, is also a highlight which is a symbol of Yokohama open port.

          Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo’s most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
