    Kanagawa Prefectural Government Office (King)

    Tower representing Yokohama, "King" of Kanagawa prefectural government office, "Queen" of Yokohama Customs, and "Jack" of Yokohama City Port Opening Memorial Hall. In the early Showa era, when there were no tall buildings, the crew of foreign ships called the towers visible from Yokohama Port so carefully and prayed for the safety of the voyage to this tower and said that the towers entered the port . It is also said that the people of such old days are satisfied and now wishing to go around the spot that can see the three towers will be fulfilled. Every March 10 is the "Three Tower Day", and various events are held at that time.
