Anna Kraskovska

Welcome travel fans! I’ve been traveling around the world for 20 years and most of my trips were to Asia. I think I have been crazy about Japan since I was a child and I will be happy to share this passion with you…

Yokohama is the second-largest city in Japan with a population of over 3 million people. It is one of the biggest port towns in Japan situated on the western coast of Tokyo Bay also known for its great food, the largest Chinatown in Japan, beautiful parks, special Japanese ice-cream, 100 types of sake and one of Japan’s leading beer breweries. Visit the Yokohama Port Museum and climb aboard a gorgeous sailing ship, enjoy amazing city views from a Sky garden, and try authentic Cantonese dishes in Yokohama Chinatown. There are so many things to do here.

Expert tips in Yokohama

Anna Kraskovska

Visit or not

Choose Yokohama for a day or 2-day trip in case you have already been to Tokyo before and you are not in a hurry, but don’t have enough time to visit Osaka or Kyoto. Even in that case I would first choose Kamakura for a day trip and if I still have at least 1 more day I would go to Yokohama. And it doesn’t mean it’s not interesting enough. It’s really nice and worth your attention, however make sure you don’t miss other signature places.

Anna Kraskovska

Choose for family trip

Yokohama is a great destination if you have kids. It is less crowded than Tokyo and you will easily have so much fun with your family exploring many attractions without so much booking in advance.

Fortunately there are no dangerous areas in Yokohama. Where to stay is up to you. I would choose Minato Mirai 21 due to its prime location in the city center to cover top Yokohama sights.

It also has a wide range of restaurants, bars, and shops.
