The Red Brick Warehouse

Minatomirai, Yokohama


Here’s Kamen Rider Den-o posing in front of Akarenga in Yokohama (I tried to get Keiji in the shot but he insisted only Den-o wanted to be in the picture). It’s a pretty cool shopping space with a very different atmosphere from other malls. There aren’t really any children’s shops in there though. But right outside the akarenga building are some grassy lawns where some families were just lounging and having a little picnic. Since the area is right on the bay there is a nice view of the water and the ships coming into the nearby port. The red brick building and cobblestone streets give that area a bit of a New England feel. It’s a refreshing change from all the Tokyo concrete.
