Yokohama: Enjoy a Short Trip from Tokyo

When I took a trip to Tokyo, I decided to visit Yokohama during the weekends. This is the perfect place for a short trip. The city has a seaside vibe that is relaxing. There are a plethora of things to do and see. If you are planning to visit Yokohama any time soon, here are a few things that you need to check out.

Hara Railway Museum

I have always loved trains and a visit to this museum topped my list. Here you will find more than 6000 train models. I got to learn about its history and the different types of trains that are there. To make it more convenient they provide you with a tablet that reads QR Code so that you can choose to learn about the history from 8 different languages.

Anpanman Children’s Museum

Are you traveling with your kids? Then this is just the place to be. Anpanman Children’s Museum was actually a series that had been developed for adults. However, it became an anime series from a picture book one. I came to learn that it is largely popular among Japanese children. You are going to find the characters of the anime in the museum.

Bashi Shōtengai

The shopping street of Yokohama is just charming. Starting from deli shops to public theatre, you will find it all. Here are some amazing restaurants and I tried out the food there and I have to say that is simply amazing. There is no better place to catch a glimpse of the lives of the local people than in Shōtengai. I also collected some souvenirs from here.

Zo-No-Hana Terrace

This structure had been developed in 2009. It had been created to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the opening of the port of Yokohama. It is an incredible place to relax. There are cafes and plazas. I loved the view of the port area.
