Pleasant seaside city with large boulevards and a bit more greenery than its larger neighbor. China Town (chukagai) is probably the highlight for most visitors. Nice but lower priority vs. other attractions in the region.

Once you've done the "must-see" areas of Tokyo and want a bit of a respite from the bustle and lights, I would definitely recommend going to Yokohama. It's about 30 minutes outside of Tokyo and very accessible. There are a lot of cute, slightly posh areas like Motomachi, where you can shop or duck into a cafe with amazing Japanese pastries. If you want to wander, walk along Yokohama port or visit Sankei-en Garden or French Hill Park--all offer gorgeous views. While traditional Japanese food is a must (I second the recommendation for Sushi Dai in Tsukiji Market), Chinese food in Japan is incredible, and the best place is in Yokohama Chinatown. I'd suggest getting a map at the tourist center and finding your way down Shanghai alley. Mid-way down you'll see a hole-in-the-wall restaurant with a line snaking out of it. It's very popular with locals, and upon seeing this line, tourists queue up knowing that it's best to eat where the locals go! Look for the sign 閣員海 and you know you're there. The restaurant is very traditional and authentic-- your check will be added with an abacus instead of a cash register! Make sure you order the ebi-chili (shrimp with Chinese chili sauce).

Yokohama is very beautiful city in Japan.
I have been in Yokohama since i was born.
It is easier connecting to famous city, such as Tokyo, Osaka, Airport or something.
My recommend accommodations is the Yokohama Royal Park Hotel or YOKOHAMA GRAND by intercontinental in the Sakuragi-cyo
1. Good location
It is easier to go shopping,Chinese town and Bay.
2. Beautiful view
You can see the great view of Bay area from room in this hotel.
You can find out the interesting culture and more!!
Come in Yokohama!!!!
