(We are out of Japanese waters, so we expect to have internet connection from now on.)
1. On our 2nd day in Yokohama we walked within a 2 mile radius of the port. This clock tower, built in 1917, is affectionately known as “Jack”.
2. Yay! We found more Cherry Blossoms.
3. Shiloh Presbyterian Church – one of Japan’s oldest Protestant churches, founded in 1874.
4. Five toddlers, two adults and a rope (with handles!).
5 & 6. Even on a cloudy day, something draws us skyward. Today it was the top of “Landmark Tower” and its 360 degrees.
7. Maybe I was unduly excited – but I have never seen a curved escalator!
8. Okay, who got the Ferris Wheel - building contract in Japan? This one is part of an amusement park – and look where the roller coaster goes!
9. We felt like we were in Quincy Market in Boston! This market is only seven years old – I wonder where they got the idea? It is the “Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse” and Flower Garden – right on the water front. Boston really needs to get a Ferris wheel too!
10. A misty good-bye from Yokohama “…and I think to myself, what a wonderful world!”.
