Located just south of Tokyo, Yokohama is Japanfs second largest city, with a population of 3.63 million. Well-known for having the largest Chinatown in Japan, Yokohama is also popular for its fashionable Motomachi shopping area, the Yokohama Marine Tower, Yamashita Park and the futuristic Minato Mirai 21 harborside area, which includes the Landmark Tower, the tallest building in Japan. Yokohama is also home to a professional baseball team and two professional football teams.
