Yokohama, just south of Tokyo, is a large international port today but for 250 years it was cut off from overseas visitors due to Japan's national seclusion policy. However from the 1850s travellers, including Phileas Fogg who visited in 1871, were able to explore the city. Dr Meri Arichi is our guide to the history and culture of this region, and introduces the concepts of the tea ceremony and the arts of Zen Buddhism.
