Yokohama Minatomirai faces the ocean and overlooks magnificent scenery. It has many different museums, amusements, shopping malls, hotels and so on. First, we visit Hara Model Railway Museum, which features about 1,000 model trains including rare ones collected by Hara Nobutaro from worldwide. In addition, you would be amazed at the large-scale and extraordinarily elaborate diorama. Next, enjoy creating own original cupnoodles with favorite soup, ingredients and a cup design at Cupnoodles Museum. If you want, you can make chicken ramen from scratch (it takes 90 min. and needs a booking). Finally, we drop by Red Brick Warehouse, a symbol of Yokohama. The two structures were built about 100 years ago and now have shops of stylish selections. Yokohama is just 30 min. far from Tokyo by train and people of all ages can enjoy. Why don't you join me?

Excellent Guide

Masako was early to meet us at our hotel, which was a good omen for me knowing she was punctual. She showed us how to use the subway system which seemed complicated even though we’ve navigated subways the world over. Masako’s English was very good and easy to understand. Her knowledge of Tokyo was extensive and informative. She knew where to go for whatever we were looking for and was good in suggesting a lunch restaurant. If we return to Tokyo, we would definitely use her again.

Masako N.

Dear Richard, Thank you very much for the lovely comment. It was wonderful to be with you. You two are energetic though you arrived Tokyo thd day before and might have had jet lag. You are friendly and open-minded about different culture. I was convinced to hear you do voluntary work in many countries and your wife runs her own company. I very much enjoyed chatting with you as well. When you return to Tokyo, I would like to meet you again, too. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan! Best regards, Masako

Excellent despite the weather

We enjoyed our time with Masako very much. She was very organized and easy to understand. Our weather was not good and she happily made adjustments to our original itinerary. We had a relaxing morning and a delicious lunch before she helped us find our way to the airport for our flight home. Thanks again Masako, it was great meeting you. Margaret and Jeff

Masako N.

Hello Margaret and Jeff, Thank you very much for the lovely comment. I appreciate it. I am glad to hear you went back home safe and sound. Though it was half a day, it was wonderful to be with you. Your friendliness and kindness helped me for all uncomfortable weather. It has still been raining here since then. When you return to Japan sometime in the future, I would like to meet you and show you around our beautiful country! Best regards, Masako

Yokohama your way (from 4 hours)

Yokohama
4 hours

Yokohama is a beautiful harbor city with mix of historical and modern buildings, and Chinatown with its genuine Chinese flavors .Excellent views and plenty of photo opps. It's just only 30 minutes away from Tokyo by train. For a 4-hour tour, please select two or three destinations from the Hightlights section. (all of which are my personal favorites.) Sankeien Garden(#11) is highly recommended if you're not going to either Kamakura or Kyoto (extra two hours). See you in Yokohama!
