Since its opening in 1859, Yokohama has grown into a vibrant international city with a history of economic and cultural exchange as a gateway to other countries. There are many spots around the city that tell the story of the opening of the port, and even today it is an open port town where many foreign passenger ships come and go. It is also a city that is constantly changing and developing, centered around the Minato Mirai 21 area, which is undergoing development with cutting-edge experience-based facilities and research and development bases for global companies. Welcome to an exciting city that combines the charms of both the sophisticated urban waterfront area and the idyllic green suburban area!
