Where to stay in Yokohama

Yokohama Hotels

Yokohama is a vast, sprawling city set beside the glistening waters of Tokyo Bay, in Japan’s Kanto region. Once a small fishing village, Yokohama is now a dazzling port city, where glitzy high rises spear the skyline and museums and galleries line the streets. Splurging shoppers can indulge in a mix of stylish boutiques and buzzing markets, while culture enthusiasts tour the traditional gardens and modern architectural marvels. Nightlife lovers can also enjoy Yokohama’s booming karaoke bars and clubs.

Things to see

With its immense size and winding streets, it’s difficult to know where to begin in Yokohama - but why not start your day on a high by exploring the bright and bustling streets of Yokohama Chinatown. Walk beneath the fiery-red Goodwill Gate, stop for some authentic sticky rice, and visit the curious trinket stores. Afterwards, stop by the Yokohama Marine Tower, a 106-metre high lattice-work structure that functions as an inland lighthouse, illuminating the night with neon reds and greens. Visitors can ascend to its spacious observation deck, and enjoy a crystal-clear view over the city and bay - some days, it’s even possible to see Mount Fuji. In the afternoon, unwind in the tranquil green grounds of Sankei-en, a traditional Japanese garden stippled with lily ponds and pagodas. If you’re travelling with the kids, cap off your day by visiting the red pandas at Nogeyama Zoo.

Where to stay

Stay in the centre of Kannai, Yokohama’s historic port district, for a peaceful family-friendly vibe with easy access to many of Yokohama’s top sights. This leafy waterfront area includes the tranquil Yamashita Park, which rests beside the stately Hikawa Maru museum ship. For a more modern atmosphere of upper-end shopping, graceful art galleries, and trendy cafes, stay in the Minato Mirai 21 business district, adjacent to Kannai. This area also includes the quirky Cosmo Clock 21 Ferris Wheel. For a bouncing international hub flush with independent boutiques, karaoke bars and dance clubs, stay in the lively Isezakicho neighbourhood.

How to get to Yokohama

While Yokohama doesn’t have its own airport, it is well-served by Tokyo’s 2 main airports. Either fly in to Narita Airport or Haneda Airport - both are enormous international gateways providing year-round direct flights to and from top global destinations, such as London, Paris, Los Angeles, and Beijing. From Narita Airport, you can take an Express Train directly to Yokohama, which takes around one and a half hours. From Haneda, hop on the inexpensive Keikyu Line Airport Express train to Yokohama Station - these regular and reliable trains take just 35 minutes. Once you arrive in Yokohama, you’ll find it’s easiest to get around via the speedy subway line.
