I am back again..
This photo I took behind the Marina Sajima Hotel where I am staying in for my study. It is located at Yokosuka, Kanagawa, Japan.
Yokosuka (Japanese: 横須賀市; -shi) is a city located in Kanagawa, Japan.
It is located at the mouth of Tokyo Bay in the Miura Peninsula, and the city stretches across the peninsula to Sagami Bay. Its neighbors are Yokohama, Miura, Hayama, and Zushi.
the city has an estimated population of 423,576 and a density of 4,286.74 people per km². It covers an area of 100.62 km². It is the 11th most populous city in Greater Tokyo, 12th in Kantō region.
Yokosuka now is home to one of the biggest military seaports shared by the United States Navy and the Maritime Self-Defense Force of Japan. The US Navy conventionally powered USS Kitty Hawk is currently "forward deployed" at Yokosuka Naval Base. On October 28, 2005, the US Navy announced that in 2008 the USS Kitty Hawk will be replaced by the USS George Washington, a nuclear powered Nimitz class carrier.  A US Navy spokesman said the decision was a mutual agreement between the United States and Japan. Hiroyuki Hosoda, a top spokesman for Japan's government, said, "We believe that the change (of the carriers) will lead to maintaining the solid presence of the U.S. Navy and contribute to keeping Japan's security and international peace into the future." This would be the first time a U.S. nuclear powered ship would be permanently based in Japan. 
The Club Alliance enlisted club, which lies just inside the main gate of Yokosuka Naval Base, opened in 1983. It replaced the old Club Alliance which was demolished to make way for the Prince Hotel. The old Club Alliance is where Ryudo Uzaki got his start playing rock and roll.
The Honch, a mecca for shopping and nightlife and located just outside the Yokosuka Naval Base's main gates, is a popular attraction for tourists and sailors stationed nearby, as well as local Japanese residents.
The former prime minister of Japan, Junichiro Koizumi, was born in Yokosuka and attended the Yokosuka High School.
Many Nissan and Infiniti automobiles, such as the Nissan Maxima and Infiniti G20, were assembled in the 520,000 square metre Oppama plant (追浜工場) in Yokosuka. The plant has been said to have played a significant role in Nissan’s revival with its one car per minute output and quick four day reconfiguration between assembly of various autos. The plant is adjacent to Nissan's Research and Development Center, the Oppama Proving Ground and the Oppama Wharf, from which Nissan ships vehicles made at Oppama and Nissan’s other two Japanese vehicle assembly plants to other regions of Japan and overseas to other global markets.

Hi Vu. Good scene well cropped with interesting notes. The blue tones are exactly what i like to see and the colouring is similar to that we have here in Sydney quite often. Pleased to see where our car was made as a bonus. TFS. Murray.
