City Flowe

Rose Garden of British House Yokohama
The "Rose" was designated as Yokohama's city flower on September 23, 1989 (Heisei 1) in order to create a symbol of a Yokohama filled with flowers and greenery. Many western roses are said to have landed in Japan through Yokohama's port just after its opening. They have become the flower most familiar to the citizens over a century.
