The Yokohama Landmark Tower is the first thing you notice the minute you walk out of the train station. This building has the fastest elevator in the world, produced by Fujitsu.

I followed my way through Yokohama bay, walked through a cool theme park and ended up in Chinatown where I met my friends before we headed towards Masuchan's Box for a parapara & eurobeat event.

The meat buns in chinatown were delicious, especially the kare-man (curry bun). The chinatown in Yokohama is the largest chinatown in the world, outside of China.

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.
