Rainy season in Japan is finishing soon.
How about taking a walk on sunny days?
I'll recommend you nice Osampo(taking a walk) course in Yamate in Yokohama.
This is "French Mountain(France Yama)" that is the hillside between "Harbour View Park(Minato no mieru oka Kouen)" and the canal.
There's a windmill here.
Although it was a hot day, I could feel cool winds when I was taking a walk there.
If you prefer more quiet place, go to "Yamate Italian Hill Garden(Yamate Italia Yama Teien" that's located near Ishikawa-cho Station.
1880-1886,there used to be the Consulate of Italy here, so this place was called "Italian Hill" before.
You can see two beauriful houses in Italian Hill Garden.
This is "Bluff 18" which was built for foreigners after the Great Kanto Earthquake(1923).
And this is "Diplomat's House"
This house was belonged to Sadatsuchi Uchida who was a diplomat,and originally it was built in Shibuya.But it was moved to Yamate in 1990s.
You can also see the inside of Diplomat's House for free.
Around the house, there are a lot of beautiful flowers.
Yamate is an ideal place for couple to take a walk...
Like them, let's enjoy talking about the nature...
'Wow, what a beautiful bird!'
'Yeah,I want to be free from you like that bird...'
