Yokohama Port Opening Memorial Hall (also known as “Jack Tower”, ジャックの塔) in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture. Designed by Shigeyoshi Fukuda (福田重義, 1887-1971) and Shichigoro Yamada (山田七五郎, 1871-1945), it was completed in 1917 (Taisho 6). The interior burned in the Great Kanto earthquake of 1923 (Taisho 12), but it was restored in 1927 (Showa 2). Ca. 1930s.

The tower of the Memorial Hall is one of the three Yokohama towers, a group of historical towers. They have been nicknamed King, Queen and Jack. The other two are the Yokohama Customs building (Queen) and the Kanagawa Prefectural Office (King).
