Roses bloom on the Yokohama Bluff
Rose garden in Yokohama 1999

I went to the rose garden on the Yokohama Bluff where is one of my favorite place in Yokohama.
This area used to be so quiet street where there are Western style houses that mainly Americans lived. Every time I walked down the street I felt some different atmosphere from the other places in Japan.

Since Marine Tower and Bay Bridge were built and became the symbol of Yokohama City, this Bluff became very popular sight-seeing spot and many people visit there now.
Especially the season when the roses bloom, so many people come and enjoy the beautiful rose garden and the view of Port Yokohama.

There are Port view Park, rose garden and a British style house where small concert are held.
This area was separated to three section until last year. This year they were connected with path full of flowers. When I went there it was full of people who were painting the pictures and taking the photos.

I was surprised to find the big change. But the roses were where they had been.

Every rose was completely in full bloom.
At the corner of this garden, there is a rose that is named Ingrid Bergman, who is the famous actress.
Every time I see this rose, I remember that stunning actress.
The red and large rose seems to explain her beauty, doesn't it?
