Introducing the Magic of Yokohama
Crafting a brew for Yokohama’s urban vibe and people
Considered to be one of the points of origin of the Japanese beer industry, Yokohama is known as the city with the highest density of craft beer breweries in Japan. We spoke with the owner of the renowned craft beer spot LIBUSHI to uncover the secret ingredient behind this thriving scene and tap into the charms of Yokohama.
Green innovation from Yokohama to the world
The international convention ‘Y-SHIP 2023’ held at Yokohama Pacifico concluded with success, having welcomed approximately 2,000 attendees, including pre-events. For those who couldn't join us at Y-SHIP, let us share a glimpse of the event so you can experience some of the atmosphere remotely.
Yokohama—An international business city where innovation and creativity merge
Yokohama, the prefectural capital of Kanagawa Prefecture, is one of the world's leading international cities. With a population of about 3.77 million, it is comparable in population to Los Angeles (about 4 million people), the second largest city in the United States after New York, and Berlin (about 3.7 million people), the largest city in Germany.
A deep dive into Yokohama’s drinking district
Noge is Yokohama's premier drinking district, with a vast array of bars, izakayas, and jazz clubs to choose from to enjoy a good night out. In recent years, Noge has become increasingly popular among younger people in Japan, attracting a lot of attention online.
Experience Yokohama from land and sea
Yokohama is packed full of famous sightseeing spots. While exploring the city on foot is one possible option, there are other fun ways to get around. One of the most enjoyable options for transportation is the amphibious bus called the SKY Duck.
Visit the birthplace of yōshoku cuisine
When the city opened its port to the outside world, many people from across the globe came to Yokohama, and they brought an abundance of Western culture with them. A direct result of this was that the city became the birthplace of a unique food culture, where Western dishes started being incorporated into Japanese cuisine.
