The story of Yokohama

In humanities class we have been working on the story of Yokohama. We all went on a field trip through Yokohama and then learn about the history. Then we needed to make a presentation about a question that we chose for ourselves. Here is my presentation:

 

In all the presentations of my classmates I have also learned more things about the city and it’s history.
I have learned a lot about that commodore Perry influenced Japan a lot by showing technology, western style of clothing and food to Japan. I have also learned that because of this Japan copied all the western things and developed faster than all western countries. I have also learned that the great Kanto earthquake nearly destroyed everything of Yokohama. This was also because there were loads of wooden houses.
