Yokohama is the capital of Kanagawa Prefecture, located in the Kanto region
of the main island of Honshu and is a major commercial hub of the Greater Tokyo Area.
Yokohama's population of 3.6 million makes it Japan's largest incorporated city and
second most populous urban area after Tokyo (during nighttime - Yokohama ranks
3rd in daytime population, after Osaka).
Yokohama developed rapidly as Japan's prominent port city following the end of
Japan's isolation in the late 19th century, and is today one of its major ports along
with Kobe, Osaka, Nagoya, Hakata, Tokyo, and Chiba.
Yokohama is also one of the very few cities in Japan with a diverse multicultural population,
although there has been an influx in immigration into Japan as a whole in recent years.
As a result it has become a multicultural city with multicultural attractions including
multicultural festivals and events.
