The Japanese oldest water pipe

 Japanese oldest water pipe (Noge) 3-160-4, Nogecho, Naka-ku, Yokohama-shi 
 In 1887 (Meiji 20), first Japanese modern water supply was founded in Yokohama by instruction of British "Henry Spenser Palmer".
 We laid water pipe using truck for transportation of iron pipe and equipments at approximately 44 kilos from junction (existing Sagamihara-shi Tsukui) of the Sagami River and the Doshi River to storing water ground of Mt. Noge of Yokohama.
 Carried water was purified and supplied to Sakuragicho and the Kannai area.

 Relief of Palmer made of bronze casting is attached to the center of pipe.

Palmer relief

 We touch the Japanese oldest water pipe, and how about feeling the history?
