Yokohama

Yokohama, the chief place of foreign trade in Japan, is situated on the Bay of Yedo, in the island of Niphon, having Kanagawa as its port. Established under the Elgin Treaty of 1858, it is a well-built and prosperous town, and has grown to large size, but the Japanese Government looks on it with disfavour. The exports considerably exceed the imports, and consist principally of tea, silk, cotton, flax, tobacco, and native produce.
