Yokohama: Situated south of Tokyo on Tokyo Bay, Yokohama is Japan's second most populated city, after Tokyo. Up until the mid 1800's, Yokohama was a small fishing village but with the influx of foreigners it rapidly became the base of foreign trade in Japan and to this day, while being unquestionably Japanese, it remains popular among expats, is home to the largest Chinatown in Japan and preserves some former Western residences in the Yamate district.
