Yokohama! YoooOOookohama!

Yokohama – let me take a walk with you and show you to my guests.

Yokohama, you lovely town.

You lie just minutes away from Tokyo and score the number 5 spot of Japan’s visitor locations.

But you deserve more, to be paid a tribute.

With you I can finally smell history, Yokohama.

Small and beautiful you are, with your Chinatown.

Who wants to live in Tokyo if you can get all positive traits of an international city in Yokohama?

And after all, you gave me water.

The sea. I could spend endless hours here.

Yokohama: whiling away at the sea

Smooth waves and a fresh breeze against Tokyo’s rigid concrete structures and stark roads.

The feeling of a harbour town muffles you everywhere.

But Yokohama will never be a riddle to me with its unobstructed line of sights, the sea always very close, its perceptible history and transparent architecture.

Yokohama, you catched me and I think we both share an old love now.
