While Tokyo’s southern neighbor isn’t exactly an unknown per say, a surprising number of visitors to Japan never make it to Yokohama. Given the area’s history and charm, this is a real shame. Whether you want to walk the streets of one of the world’s biggest Chinatown areas or have a fun day exploring the Minato Mirai waterfront, this city is guaranteed to dazzle everyone! While Tokyo can seem overwhelmingly fast paced at times, Yokohama’s welcoming vibe is definitely more relaxed. Taking a day strolling around Yokohama is definitely one of the best things to do in Japan to give yourself a better overview of the different cities.
