Port of Yokohama, Japan


United Yacht Transportation provides secure movement of their yacht vessel to the Port of Yokohama, Japan. Yokohama is a shining example of Japan’s trading culture and the unique collection of the town creates a warm and inviting atmosphere. Beyond the charming town is the exciting movement of Japanese culture with shopping and entertainment centers all around.

The port of Yokohama is important in Japanese culture because it was the first port to be opened to trade with the outside world in the nineteenth century. Japan had closed its doors to world trade in the seventeenth century and the opening of Yokohama is representative of New Japan. Yokohama is the capital city of Kanagawa Prefecture and the second largest city in Japan, after Tokyo. It lies on the Tokyo Bay, south of Tokyo in the main island of Honshu. Yokohama forms a major commercial hub for the greater Tokyo area.

Visitors frequent the Sankei-en Garden, an extensive garden that covers 175,000 square meters, Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, containing jazz club & restaurants, Minato Mirai 21, the highest observation deck in Japan and the Kaiko Shiryokan, a museum chronicling history of Yokohama.
