Yokohama, Japan

The port of Yokohama provides seamless access to Tokyo, Japan’s capital and the most populous city on earth. There is more than enough variety in Tokyo to occupy a lifetime. Peruse the historic and immaculate Imperial Palace and Gardens before hitching an enchanting rickshaw ride through the lanterns and statues of the Asakusa district and its Sensoji Temple. Roam the city on a scavenger hunt for architectural oddities such as the Skytree Tower and the Tokyo Dome entertainment complex. Ever the paradise of cultural contrasts, Tokyo offers both classical entertainment like traditional kabuki performances, or the astonishing quirkiness of the teenaged fashion, cosplay and anime-fans along Takeshita Dori in Shinjuku.
