Yokohama, a Welcoming City. MSC Japan Tour Cruise starts here.

On its southern borders Tokyo merges with Yokohama, Japan’s second most populous city and a major international port. When you step aground from your MSC cruise you will find that Yokohama feels far more spacious and airy than the capital, thanks to its open harbour frontage and generally low-rise skyline. Since its opening about 160 years ago, Yokohama has actively developed foreign culture and information as a gateway to Japan, and has developed as a city where tradition and internationality are in harmony. There are many things that are Japan’s first, from food to culture, such as ice cream, beer, railways, photography, etc. In addition, close to the port are the world’s largest “Chinatown”, “Sanjoen” of Japanese gardens, “red brick warehouse” used as a bonded warehouse at the time of the port opening, and “Yokohama Landmark Tower” with a height of 300m. There are a lot of The close coexistence of these is one of the manifestations of Yokohama’s unique history and culture.
