Yokohama


Yokohama, one of the most modern cities of Japan, has so many amazingly special shaped buildings combined as a consistent unified architecture with so many places to go, things to do, work to see, arts and museums to discover such as Chinatown, Moroka Kumano Shrine, Bay Stars Stadium, Nissan Stadium, Marine Tower, Hikawa Maru, Sky Walk, Landmark Tower, etc.

Yokohama was the first port of Japan that opened up to foreign trade in 1954. Suffering from the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923 and bombings of the Second War World had made the whole city never regained its prominence although it looks modern and no warfare traits are left this day.  Remaining a maritime city to this day with famous spots and wonders, it retains an international flavor. Let’s check out the top 22 things to do and places to go in this lovely Yokohama.
