YOKOHAMA HIGHLIGHTS
yokahoma-smallWith a population of over three million people, Yokohama is Japan's second largest city. It is located less than 30 minutes south of Tokyo by train, and is the capital city of  Kanagawa Prefecture.  Towards the end of the Edo Period (1603-1867), during which Japan isolated herself from the rest of the world, Western nations forced the country to open its ports to foreign trade. In 1859, Yokohama's port became one of the first ports to be opened, and Yokohama quickly grew from a small fishing village into one of Japan's major cities. Until today, the Yamate residential area retains a Western touch and houses many foreign residents.
