YOKOHAMA

 
 

Yokohama is Japan's second largest city with a population of over three million. Yokohama is located less than half an hour south of Tokyo by train, and is the capital of Kanagawa Prefecture.

Towards the end of the Edo Period (1603-1867), during which Japan maintained a policy of self-isolation, Yokohama's port was one of the first to be opened to foreign trade in 1859. Consequently, Yokohama quickly grew from a small fishing village into one of Japan's major cities.

Just 30 minutes by train from Tokyo, and with a history of welcoming foreigners since the 1850's Yokohama is set to be one of the highlight destinations for Japan 2019.
