As a satellite event of "Hama-Fes Y161", a port opening memorial event
which conveys the history of the opening of Yokohama Port,
classic cars from the 1920s to 1973 gather on Yokohama Motomachi Shopping Street
and this 520km classic car rally over three days starts.
We go around exotic areas, "Bashamichi, Kannai, Yamashitacho, Yokohama Chinatown, Motomachi and Yamate"
and visit "Izu Shimoda", which tells us about the history of the opening of the port,
and "Nishiizu", where the beautiful and varied coastline stretches out in front of you.
In addition, we drive through "Hakone", where fresh green leaves dazzle your eyes, and "Minamiashigar",
where you can feel a pleasant wind blowing through the forest road, then return to
Yokohama Motomachi Shopping Street to applaud cars, drivers and co-drivers for their good fight for three days.
