Baseball and softball will be played at Yokohama Stadium and Fukushima Azuma Stadium, but this time I will introduce around Yokohama Stadium.
Yokohama Stadium is a baseball stadium in a park called Yokohama Park, and within walking distance there are various sightseeing spots that represent Japan, such as Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, Chinatown, Yamashita Park, Motomachi, and so on.
Although it is a little inconspicuous compared to them, there is a facility called Yokohama Archives of History when walking about 400 meters from Yokohama Park toward the sea.
At that time, Japan, which had no diplomatic relations with western countries other than the Netherlands, signed a Convention of Peace and Amity between the United States of America and the Empire of Japan in 1854 near the Yokohama Archives of History ,now Opening Square Park.
After that, Japan will open its doors, interact with foreign countries and follow the path to modernization.
When you come to watching baseball or softball, you may be good to think about the history of modernization in Japan.
