Sankeien Japanese garden
Sankeien is a large park with 17 Japanese-style buildings that opened in 1906 in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture.
Inside the park, there is a beautiful autumn foliage valley lined with autumn leaves in combination with traditional Japanese architecture.
Also there is a hill with a view of the five-story pagoda and a pond where many water birds play, making it a very relaxing place to visit.
There are museums , restaurants, shops and rest areas.
They often have seasonal events there.
Yokohama Chinatown is one of the largest Chinatowns in the world.
It was founded in 1859 when Yokohama opened its port to Westerners and Chinese merchants settled in the area .
And Chinese merchants began building the Kanteibyu and other structures.
There are about 500 stores line the streets, and 6,000 Chinese people live in the area.
The area is always lively with many tourists.
Costco is an American wholesale supermarket that operates worldwide 860 sores but also has 33 stores in Japan.
Today’s members said they enjoy going to the local Costco when they travel abroad.
They said it’s their hobby!
On this day, we went to the Costco in Yokohama Seaside.
They made it !
Asakusa , Sensoji Temple
We drove to Asakusa the traditional town in Tokyo.
Sensoji temple is the oldest temple in Tokyo, founded in 628.
From the Nakamise shopping street to the rickshaw tour guides, this whole area is like a theme park of old Tokyo.
They bought a Japanese kitchen knife as a souvenir.
It’s like a Japanese sword!
