There is a nice skyscraper in Yokohama City, Japan. It is the Yokohama Landmark Tower. No, I will not talk about the Landmark Tower here. But it was the existence of this skyscraper that made possible my first random walks around Yokohama, because it is visible from many parts of the city, from really far away. So I decided it would be my “north”, the reference for my navigation. I decided… “I will go there walking!”. Of course I found a lot of curiosities in the way, things I could never have planned to find, to visit…
As the painted walls of a nearby school.
I was walking and letting my thoughts fly away, but then In realized the wall in that area was all painted. Children art! I started taking pictures, since they ware very lovely paintings.
Some while later an old lady came and approached me in English.
– These paintings are really beautiful, aren’t them? I love them!
– Yes! Were the student’s themselves who made this?
– Yes, yes… on some anniversary of this school, they made this paintings in the wall telling a little bit of the story of Yokohama and Japan…
I hope you enjoy:
