Japan’s second largest metropolis and a host city of the Rugby World Cup Japan 2019, Yokohama is nestled on the shores of Tokyo Bay. A small fishing village in the early 19th century, Yokohama grew rapidly into a bright and breezy city once Japan opened up to foreign trade as a major port. Today its charming shoreline, cosmopolitan food and creative arts scene are just some of the reasons that it is popular with ex-pats – it also has one of the world’s largest Chinatowns! Only half an hour from Tokyo, Yokohama has a totally different feel to the capital, with a much more laidback and liveable vibe.
