Cup Noodles Museum

Just behind the World Porters shopping center is a large brick building with glass windows along the top. This is the Cup Noodles Museum, a museum dedicated entirely to the history of instant noodles as invented by Momofuku Ando in 1958. The spacious interior begins with a display of noodle packaging and the Momofuku story, including a re-creation of his workshed. A series of interactive displays under will keep the children amused. On the next floor is a cup noodle factory and chicken ramen factory, both of which require an extra fee to enter. On the next floor is a play area and food court serving ramen noodles from around the world. There is a brochure in English, and the titles of exhibits are in English. The museum is very popular on weekends. -AH

Yamate Museum

The quaint green wooden house that is the Yamate Museum was part of a larger Western/Japanese house constructed in 1909 for Mr Kanekichi Nzkazawa. It was moved to the current location, without the Japanese part, and is now the last remaining Western wooden house in Yokohama. The two-room museum has a collection of artifacts from the time of the establishment of the foreign settlement in Yokohama including glassware, tiles, chinaware and an organ. Upstairs is a model of the nearby Foreign Cemetery and information about some of the more notable graves. The museum also gives a glimpse into life in the early development of Yokohama and the foreign community that lived here. Some of the information is available in English. - AH

Amid the urban din of southern Yokohama lies a serene, picturesque sanctum. Based on an ingenious design conceptualized by Tomito Hara, this traditional, Japanese-style garden is riddled with trickling rivers and winding trails. Tomitaro Hara began by acquiring several buildings including tea houses, a farmer's house, a pagoda and various villas, and then placed them on his property amidst ponds, wooded slopes and landscaped gardens; these were later opened to the public in 1906. The picturesque, undulating landscape of the park is dotted with a troupe of iconic buildings which are as striking to look at as they are historically significant. Sankei-en also features lovely tea houses which further augment its allure. Although there are sixteen separate buildings, the Rinshukaku villa, with paintings by Kano-school masters, is particularly noteworthy. In addition, the famed pagoda, Tenzui-ji Juto, Gekka-den, Tenju-in, Choshu-kaku, Shunso-ro, Tokei-ji, the Yanohara House and the main hall of Tomyo-ji have been designated significant cultural properties, too.

Yokohama Bay Bridge

Yokohama Bay Bridge is one of the prominent landmarks in Yokohama, not only because it spans part of Yokohama Bay, but because of its aesthetic design. The Yokohama Bay Bridge is a suspension bridge with 176 cables strung diagonally from two H-shaped support pillars. The bridge carries the six-lane Metropolitan Expressway and a pedestrian road 860 meters across the mouth of Yokohama Harbor. Its auspicious position led it to be deemed the "Gateway to the Port of Yokohama." Opened in 1989, the Yokohama Bay Bridge was designed to be one of the centerpieces of Yokohama's futuristic looking cityscape, and it certainly has realized that goal.

Hasseiden Local Museum

The Hasseiden was built in 1933 on the headland of Honmoku Hatiouj, by Adachi Kenzo, a politician. The three-story octagonal building is modeled on the Yumedono of Horyu-ji temple. Young people attended lectures in the second floor room, where on a small stage stand eight sages, four either side of the a divine mirror. In 1937, Kenzo donated the building to the Yokohama City, along with the land that became Honmoku Koen. It is now a local museum displaying fishing and farming implements and part of a farmhouse from the Meiji era. The many photographs record a gentler pace of life in Yokohama and record the huge reclamation scheme along the coast here. There is very little English in the museum, but an English leaflet is available. Paths behind the museum lead to Honmoku Koen and have a good view of the coast and port. - AH

Don't be shy; their raison'd'etre is to feed and educate you, so skip breakfast and head on down to the Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum.

Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine

Als eine Widmung an den Gott des Krieges, den Beschützer der Familie Minamoto, ist dieser im Jahre 1063 errichtete Schrein vor allem aufgrund seines auffälligen zinnoberrot lackierten Torii-Torbogens bekannt und mit den üblichen für Kamakura typischen Zen-Tempeln kaum zu vergleichen. Der Legende nach war es einst nur den Shogun möglich, über die erstmals 1182 erbaute Trommelbrücke (Taikobashi) zu gehen. Reizvoll sind außerdem der uralte Ginkgo-Baum nahe der Tanzbühne und die mit Lotusblüten überwachsenen Teiche, die über ehemaligen Reisfeldern liegen.
