Yokohama (which means “horizontal beach” in Japanese) is the capital city of Japan’s Kanagawa Prefecture and the country’s largest city in terms of population, next to Tokyo, with over three million residents. Situated in Tokyo Bay in the Kanto region, the city is a key commercial hub and a major component of the Greater Tokyo Area (also known as the Tokyo-Yokohama metropolitan area). In the mid-19th century, as Japan’s self-isolation during the Edo Period was nearing its end, Yokohama was among the first areas in the country to welcome foreign trade. This resulted in Yokohama transforming from a tiny fishing village into an important port city in Japan. At present, it remains to be one of the country’s major ports, along with the cities of Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Hakata, Chiba, and Kobe.
Yokohama serves as a major commercial and industrial center for Japan and is popular among expats working in various global companies. In addition, partly due to its proximity to Tokyo, Yokohama has gradually become more and more popular among tourists, both local and foreign. Whether you’re in the city for business, vacation, or a mix of both, make the most out of your time by using Bounce’s temporary storage luggage services.

Top Things to Do
Located just a half-hour train ride from Tokyo, Yokohama is the perfect city to explore, especially if you only have a few days. From museums and art galleries to restaurants and shopping districts, here are some of the best that Yokohama has to offer:
Yokohama Museum of Art: Considered one of the most valuable art centers in the city, the Yokohama Museum of Art houses a vast collection of works from Japanese and international artists, mostly from the late 19th century onwards. The building's stunning exterior, which was designed by Kenzo Tange, features symmetrical patterns and a 65-foot tall high entrance hall. Some of the artists whose works are on display here include Dali, Cezanne, Picasso, and Magritte. The Yokohama Museum of Art also hosts special exhibitions several times a year. (Bag policy: The museum does not allow oversized bags or backpacks inside the facility, and they must be left in the provided lockers. For your peace of mind, head over to a nearby Bounce location and store your things there instead.)
Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum: Undoubtedly one of the more interesting and unique museums in Japan, the Shinyokohama Ramen Museum is exactly what its name suggests – a space dedicated to the Japanese food ramen. Established in 1994, the ramen-themed museum has a replica of a 1958 old town street in Tokyo that’s lined with ramen shops from different regions in the country. Guests of the museum can also eat actual ramen and try out the different varieties. (Bag policy: Bringing bulky luggage inside the museum is not allowed. Instead, leave your things with Bounce before your visit.)
Yokohama Port Museum: To get a better understanding of the city’s maritime history, head over to the Yokohama Port Museum. This facility details the past of the Yokohama Port and how it developed over the years. However, the main attraction is the Nippon Maru, a real-life ship built in 1930 and used in the port until its retirement in 1984. You can explore the inside of the ship, see its many sections, and even use the ship simulator. (Bag policy: Large luggage and bags are prohibited inside the ship and the museum. For your convenience, store your things at a Bounce location within the area.)
The shopping options in Yokohama are endless. There are plenty of retail areas that cater to all preferences and budgets – from traditional shopping arcades and discount shops to outlet malls and department stores. Make the most out of your shopping experience by visiting these places:

The space is filled with department stores such as the Sogo Yokohama and the Takashimaya. There are also numerous local vendors and discount shops that sell all kinds of goods.
Motomachi: The district, which is famous among foreigners, is filled with Western-style architecture and shops. Motomachi’s five-block long street features different fashion boutiques, clothing outlets, furniture stores, accessories and so much more.
Minato Mirai 21 Area: Although most famous for its tourist attractions, Minato Mirai also has plenty to offer in shopping opportunities. The area is home to great retail spots such as the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, Landmark Plaza, MARK IS Minato Mirai and Queen’s Square.
The dining scene in Yokohama is varied; the city is filled with traditional Japanese restaurants and international flavors to cater to its growing foreign population. These are some of the top dining options you’ll find in Yokohama:

International flavors: With a large expat population of different nationalities here, it’s no surprise that Yokohama’s best dining spots feature a lot of international cuisine.
