Yamate Italian Gardens and Other Random Photos (Yokohama)

This weekend we visited Yamate Italian Gardens Park, located on top of the hill behind Ishikawa-cho Station in Motomachi.  Spent about an hour there having green tea and Japanese pastry, exploring the Diplomat’s House and Bluff 18 Ban-Kan residence which were relocated.  The land area was the former Italian Consulate during the Meiji Period and has a view that overlooks Yokohama.  The park also has a nice garden and water fountain.  There is not much English translation, except in the Bluff 18 residence.  The cost is free and they are open from 9:30 am to 5 pm.
