Getting there & away
Frequent JR and private-line trains from Tokyo serve Yokohama station, where you can change for Sakuragichō and Kannai (¥130, three and five minutes) or Ishikawachō (¥150, eight minutes), or the more expensive local subway. Take the Keihin Kyūkō line from Shinagawa station (¥290, 18 minutes), or the Tōkyū Tōyoko line from Shibuya station (¥260, about 25 minutes), which becomes the Minato Mirai subway line to Minatomirai (¥440, 28 minutes) and Motomachi-Chūkagai (¥460, 30 minutes).
From Tokyo station, JR’s Keihin Tōhoku and Tōkaidō lines stop at Yokohama station (¥450, 40 minutes); some continue on to Sakuragichō, Kannai and Ishikawa-chō (all ¥540). The Tōkaidō shinkansen stops at Shin-Yokohama station, northwest of town, connected to the city centre by the Yokohama line.
