Yokohama is Japan’s second largest city and one of the first to open its port to foreign trade in 1859. It also hosts one of the largest Chinatowns in the world.
ABOUT THE PHOTO
Walking around the pier there was so much to see. The famous Red Brick Warehouse, Ramen and Cup Noodles museum, Yamashita Park. After a long day at the Sankeien Gardens we walked down and through the city. We checked out the thriving Chinatown which ended only two blocks from the pier. By the time we were walking around the bay it was dark. As we crossed a bridge to continue our way to the train station a ferry was coming towards us. It turned in such a way to reveal its port side which was lined with these bright red lights. They painted the black water a deep and vibrant red. I dropped my bag, whipped around my camera and clicked.
