Japanese Overseas Migration Museum

This museum charts the history of Japanese migration overseas, primarily to the Americas and Hawaii. Scenes depict the early migrants to Hawaii who worked in the sugar industry, the next wave of migrants who went as settlers to countries such as Peru and Brazil, and then the post World War II migrants who went in search of a better life. Each part of the exhibition has English and Japanese explanations and there are documents, videos (with subtitles) photographs and artifacts. The journeys of the migrants are explored and scenes from their new life are recreated in the museum. A huge amount of material has been collected for this museum; much of it is displayed on video or computers. It is closed Mondays. -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

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
