70130-0013 - Yokohama Station


Yokohama Meiji 1900s Unknown
Yokohama Station in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture was a terminal station on Japan’s very first railroad, opened on June 12, 1872 (Meiji 5). The station was designed by American architect Richard P. Bridgens (ブリジェンス) who in 1864 (Genji 1) had come to Japan from San Francisco. Active as an architect in Yokohama and Tokyo, Bridgens’ influence on western architecture in the two cities cannot be overstated. Besides Yokohama Station and its twin, Shinbashi Station, he designed many other buildings that played important roles during the Meiji Period. See blog entry.
