Is this Japan!? The Unique and Exotic Culture of Yokohama
0.0/5.0

Explore a city with a mixture of international cultures and history!


Japan did not have any international relationship (due to the national isolation policy) between the 17 to 19th centuries for about 200 years. About 150 years ago, Yokohama was chosen as the "Opening Port to the World". Until then, Yokohama had been a small village living off agriculture and fishing, but the day, the port led to a rapid increase in the influx of international culture.
Yokohama has a beautiful park, an architecture full of Western culture, a Chinatown where you can eat and walk around, and a museum that tells the history of ships. All of those can only be experienced in Yokohama.
