Yokohama Port Opening Memorial Hall横浜市開港記念会館

Historical Monument

"Constructed in 1917 in memorial of the 50th anniversary of the opening of Yokohama Port, this historical building is representative of Yokohama City. The stained glass along the walls of the central staircase and the second s floor hall feature lead lines that are free and meticulous, making it an extremely valuable work, even considering Japanese stained glass history. The clock tower is 36 meters high and is beloved as ""Jack's Tower."" Designated as a Nationally Designated Important Cultural Property in 1989, it is utilized as a public hall for Naka District."

          Kanagawa Main Areas


          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.
