About Yokohama

Yokohama is the prefectural capital of Kanagawa. The prosperous city is full of a veritable forest of skyscrapers. It is known for its romantic night view. This busy modern port city has beautiful harbor views, Western architecture and the most lively Chinatown in Japan. Many Chinese visitors first come to stroll on the romantic beach front and then go to Chinatown to catch a taste of home. Because transportation between Yokohama and downtown Tokyo is extremely convenient, it is a good place for a day trip.
