When Commodore Matthew Perry landed south of Yokohama in 1858 he surprised the Japanese who had been a closed society and free of foreigners until then. Because of the death of a marine on board one of his ships Perry negotiated a place to bury the marine and it was agreed that it would be on the bluff at the back of what is now the America Yama Park. Subsequently many foreigners were buried there and it is an interesting place to walk though and check the old grave stones.
