Shopping in Yokohama

Taking time out from a business trip in 1995 to do some shopping in Tokyo and Yokohama. Yokohama is the second largest in Japan by population. It is close to Tokyo and is considered a major port city of Japan.

Japanese figures. Figurines are given as gifts to children at various times as they grow up. This is to signify steps in adolescence.

My favorite, Japanese wood cut prints.

This picture was taken at a store in Tokyo. The store specialized in kitchen supplies. I remember that the supplies in the store were very expensive and back in 1995, there was a favorable exchange rate on the US dollar vs. the Japanese Yen.
