YOKOHAMA ARCHIVES OF HISTORY

YOKOHAMA ARCHIVES OF HISTORY

The place where the Japan-U.S. Treaty of Peace and Amity was signed in 1854 was the former British Consulate General, which was the predecessor of the museum. In the museum, valuable historical materials related to the opening of Japan and the opening of the port of Yokohama are collected. It is said that Commodore Perry and the shogunate met under the Tamagusu tree, which still stands in the courtyard. The mascot character "Tanemaru" for the 150th anniversary of the opening of the port in 2009 was designed as this "Tamagusu Tree Spirit". At the adjacent open port square, Japan's oldest brick manhole and sewage pipes are on display.
