Japan: Yokohama

横浜, pronounced Yokohama, is a big city near 東京 (Tokyo). It has many nice spots such as 桜木町 (Sakuragicho) and 中華街 (pronounced Chukagai, meaning Chinatown).

Access from Tokyo city is easy

There are frequent trains from 東京駅 (Tokyo station).

Travel tips: Have lunch in Chinatown. From there take a look at 山下公園 (Yamashita park) and walk to 桜木町 (Sakuragicho).

Sakuragicho is peaceful

I went there in 2007
