Waterworks commemoration hall

Waterworks commemoration hall

The Waterworks Commemoration Hall was established in 1987 in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the foundation of Yokohama waterworks systems. This hall and the Waterworks Technology Commemoration Hall are open to public.
The Waterworks Commemoration Hall is designed to provide an easy-to-understand explanation of the history of water service and how waterworks systems operate while the Waterworks Technology Commemoration Hall displays exhibits that show the transition of waterworks technologies.
The Waterworks Commemoration Hall is in the building formerly used as the management office for the Nishiya purification plant and the Waterworks Technology Commemoration Hall is in the former Construction Department building.
The waterworks Commemoration Hall is located on one of the hills around the center of Yokohama and has an observatory where visitors can get an outstanding view of the Yokohama Bay Bridge and Landmark Tower and can even see skyscrapers in the Shinjuku sub-center on a fine day.
Many residents visit these facilities for a fascinating and informative glimpse of waterworks history and operations.
