Yokohama : Michelin's recommendations
A century and a half ago Yokohama consisted of just a few fishermen's shacks on the banks of Tokyo Bay, 30km south of the capital. The sleepy village of 600 inhabitants was roused by the trade treaty between the US and Japan in 1850 and transformed into a major commercial port, going on to become Japan's second biggest city. This cosmopolitan hub has a Chinatown, European districts and a dazzling seafront development, Minato Mirai 21, which has its sights firmly set on the future.
