Scenery Images of Amazing Yokohama City-Japan

As seeing in scenery images, Yokohama officially the City of Yokohama, is the second largest city in Japan by population after Tokyo, and most populous municipality of Japan. Via looking at beautiful scenery, it is the capital city of Kanagawa Prefecture. In the images, it lies on Tokyo Bay, south of Tokyo, in the Kantō region of the main island of Honshu. It is a major commercial hub of the Greater Tokyo Area. Yokohama’s population of 3.7 million makes it Japan’s largest incorporated city.

Yokohama was a small fishing village up to the end of the feudal Edo period, when Japan held a policy of national seclusion, having little contact with foreigners. A major turning point in Japanese history happened in 1853–54, when Commodore Matthew Perry arrived just south of Yokohama with a fleet of American warships, demanding that Japan open several ports for commerce, and the Tokugawa shogunate agreed by signing the Treaty of Peace and Amity.
