Yokohama City Profile
Yokohama is the second largest city in Japan. It is close to Tokyo and serves as an urban extension of the capital.
Since the cost of living in Yokohama is slightly less than Tokyo, especially for rent, many people live in Yokohama and commute to Tokyo. Yokohama may not be as glamorous or sophisticated as Tokyo, but as a foreign port it has a definite international flavor.

Places of Interest
