What to Expect
In this tour, I will take you to at least 7 impressive places for picture taking . It is possible to visit Yokohama by yourself . But not everybody takes pictures at ideal places. Therefore my knowledge will help you to keep good memory of Yokohama.
Yokohama is a big town and central area is surrounded by big buildings. The first point is near Sakuragi-cho area ,which is original port area, has several places to enjoy nice view of buildings and amusement park. The second point is an ideal place to see Yokohama Bay bridge. The third point is famous Red bricks warehouse area where always some events are taken place. After the Red bricks warehouse area, we will see 3 historical towers. There is one tower which has historical value in inside which you can take pictures. And the next point is close to Yamashita park. It is a well known place and has not well-known historical story . Chinatown is another place where you can enjoy different atmosphere and pictures than any place else. After China town, you have a choice for further tour. The first one is Harbor view park area which has westernized park and the second one is Sankei-En which is much bigger and Japanese style garden.
At Harbor view park area, there is atmosphere of early stage of Westernized Japan and Western style gardens with many flowers including roses.
Sankei-En which is a big Japanese garden located in south of central Yokohama and it takes about 30 minutes from China town by bus. You can enjoy the garden all the year round with different scene and flowers. It means you can enjoy different points for picture taking in every season. My recommendation is Sankei-En.
