Yokohama Travel Guide: 449 reviews and 1,383 photos

One hundred and forty-three years have passed since Yokohama opened its port to the world after 250 years of isolation. From a mere fishing village of 600 inhabitants into a leading cosmopolitan port city with nearly 3.5 million people.
.
Yokohama is home to more than 100,000 businesses. The second most populated city in Japan after Tokyo. Modern skyscrapers rise out of the Minato Mirai 21 waterfront area including a yacht sail-like building gleaming white against the blue sea and skies.
.
Yokohama has a Chinatown that dates back more than 140 years, when Chinese working at the port settled into the neighboring streets. Hamakkos (native Yokohama-ite) are equally open-minded, welcoming goods, people and information from elsewhere and digesting them all to create a new and original culture.
