190102-0049-PP - Yamate Park


Yokohama Meiji 1890s Unknown

Yamate Park (山手公園), also known as Bluff Garden, in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture.

Foreign inhabitants of Yokohama requested a safe place for recreation after the Namamugi Incident (生麦事件, Namamugi-jiken) of August 1862, when British trader Charles Lennox Richardson (1834–1862) and others were killed by samurai.

The park was opened on June 4, 1870 (Meiji 3) as a common space for foreigners who came to the park to enjoy music performances, flower shows and other events. Tennis was actually introduced to Japan here.

The park still exists and now has 12 tennis courts and a tennis museum.
