4 Things To Do In Yokohama - Japan Travel

Most tourists in Japan are concentrated in the Tokyo area as evidenced by various cultures and attractions. But when you visit Tokyo, also take a bit time to visit Yokohama because is an equally beautiful place easily accessible by the train system and only 30 minutes from Tokyo. Yokohama (横浜) is Japan's second largest city with a population of over three million and is the capital of Kanagawa Prefecture.
