VIVA! 111 de Yokohama

Celebrate with everyone in Yokohama The 111th anniversary of Japanese immigrants to Brazil

Did you know that Yokohama Port was the starting point for many Japanese to move to South America, centered on Brazil, on immigrant ships such as "Aruzenchina Maru" and "Santos Maru"? At its peak, there were nearly 20 "immigrant inns" where migrants and returnees who departed stayed. Many migrants feel very close to Yokohama.

Let's celebrate the year
