A certain amount of boredom is required to plan adventures, and now that we’ve been here long enough for schedules to fill up to bursting, boredom is a hot commodity. Fortunately, some cold, rainy weather this weekend and Chris’ need to study provided just enough idle leisure to concoct this plan for today: take the train to Yokohama, train to Negeishi, ride the No. 8 bus about 10 minutes to Honmoku and walk seven minutes to Sankeien Garden!
I left around dark and took a different bus directly to Yokohama Station (a much longer ride…so long that I jumped the gun and got off too early and still had to take the train back to Yokohama before catching the Sotetsu Line back my direction!). Despite the difficulty in getting here, this park is a must—it’s at least one of the top three prettiest places I’ve seen in Japan so far! Maybe next time I’ll even try to drive!
