  • From 4/28/2018 restart. Use the GW, I immediately went. The Yokohama specie Bank building was classic and elegant rooms. Room was on the 3rd floor. Feels a lot like the opening time of the permanent exhibits. Not because there is not that big, so many exhibits from may feel slightly so incomplete. But you can know the history about Kanagawa, feel free to. Exactly when Ukiyo-e by Utagawa Hiroshige itakura Fuji 36 views also were on display. This Ukiyo-e, in the old days from just about everywhere in Tokyo Fuji well looked weird and I understand why. Also near Yokohama 3 towers and has a lot of classic building. I think it's fun watching them, and around.

  • The building itself is designated "Yokohama positive silver line itself store". Designed by yorinaka Tsumaki tayo built in 0/1904. Yorinaka Tsumaki known also designed red brick warehouse. There are impressive exhibits. Kanagawa Prefecture's opens the Kamakura shogunate and Hōjō objected supremacy in the warring States period, but still interesting to modern. Such as 1 village in Yokohama take opening later modernization of this most important area evolve rapidly, I recommend that you look closely that this museum is located in Yokohama. Museum's collection of historical materials (seems to archive documents on the history of tens of thousands of points. ) Are those precious historical materials related to modern, College, thesis through a friend reminded me of that. Still sleeping without seeing the light of day historical records can be fixed to it. (History Museum is currently closed. Resume 4/2018 end)
