Japanese Characters for Yamashita Park


This is one of the most famous images of Yokohama - this sad and wistful statue of "the Girl in Red Shoes". The source of this statue is a children's lullaby:

"Oh, little girl in red shoes,
The foreigner has taken you away,
You left from the Yokohma harbour,
The foreigner has taken you away.
