Yokohama area by area
Yokohama is often ignored by many tourists although it is so close to Tokyo that it can be considered such a "enormous neighborhood" of Tokyo and therefore it's very easy to get there.
Many people think that it isn't n
Many think it is nothing but a "commuter town" of Tokyo, actually there are some very interesting and fascinating areas. I remind that it is the second
biggest city in Japan, even more than Osaka, it has almost 4 million inhabitants.
Perhaps my mind is conditioned because it is the city where I spent the first day of my life in Japan, but I love this city.
Along with Nagasaki and Hakodate, it is a "unique" city in Japan, infact these 3 cities were the ones chosen by the government to "open" their harbours to foreign trade while the rest of the country remained isolated.

Guided tours, activities and other things to do
If you are planning a trip to Japan and you want to do something more than just visiting famous places and monuments, we suggest you to use Govoyagin
How to use Govoyagin
Govoyagin is a very useful website to enrich your travel experience
, especially if you are going solo or it's your first time in Japan.
Because of the language barrier (and more), in Japan it is very difficult to interact with the locals and to get off the tourist track.
Thanks to Govoyagin you can find a lot of interesting and sometimes unique guided tours and activities
all over Japan (and not only in Japan), that you would otherwise never be able to enjoy.
But there's more: on Govoyagin you can also buy tickets
for several famous attractions, events, transportation and other useful services for tourists. Last but not least, you can reserve a table
in hundreds of restaurants.
