Yamate and Motomachi

Recommended
The Westerners who arrived here in the 19C chose to settle on the hill of Yamate. It's a peaceful place from which you can contemplate the bay at your leisure, especially from Harbour View Park. Yamate-Hon-Dori Street runs close to the Foreigners' Cemetery, the resting place of travellers and expatriates. The road bears marks of the area's past, such as half a dozen residences built in the style of British manors, which have been restored and made into diverse museums or exhibition centres. Motomachi Street, which remains as smart and commercial as ever, was also founded by foreign settlers.
