While there are no big drawcards in the way of sights, scratch the surface a little and you'll find out why Yokohama prides itself on its cosmopolitan roots. Though just 20 minutes south of central Tokyo, the city has a flavour and history all its own. Locals are likely to cite the uncrowded streets or neighbourhood atmosphere as the main draw, but for visitors it's the breezy bay front, microbreweries, jazz clubs and great international dining.
