Meiji-Era Architecture Tour

Western Area Multi day 4

In Odawara, which charmed many people with its breathtaking views surrounded by mountains and the ocean, temperate climate, and bountiful food supply, there have been many residential gardens belonging to those in political/business and cultural circles since the middle of the Meiji period. Tour these gardens which each brim with their own unique individuality. On the second day, tour the Yokohama Yamate Western-Style Buildings, which feel like visiting another country, and parks where you can feel the changing attitudes towards culture of the period.
