Yokohama - 横浜

A view of the buildings right out of the Sakuragicho Station (桜木町駅)。

The Nippon-maru (日本丸)is an elegant sailing ship that was in active service as a sailors' training vessel from 1930 to 1984, during which period it was known as the "Swan of the Pacific Ocean." It is now the center of a memorial park, and its interior is open for viewing by the general public.
