General Information about Yokohama
The City of Yokohama is situated about 25 kilometres to the southwest of central Tokyo. Its population of over 3.7 million makes it the second largest city in Japan.
Because Yokohama is so close to Tokyo, many of the two cities‘ economic and other activities are linked. Indeed, people outside Japan probably find it hard to see a difference between the two cities. In practice, however, Yokohama has its own unique culture, industry and commerce. The city is independent in both political and economic terms and offers its own attractions and services.
