A week in Yokohama

Looking for a bit of advice

I am at a conference in Yokohama next week and while I will be busy most days I was looking for advice on 'must do' things.

I will arrive on Sunday (Jet Lagged) and have Sunday free and then half days for Monday to Friday

Is there any suggestions of things I should see while I am there.

I thought that I would like to go to Tokyo city for a night/ afternoon.

Any help would be appreciated

Here's what to do in Yokohama and vicinity: http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2156.html You'll probably want to stay in the area and do outdoor things your first day. Sankeien Garden is nice, and the waterfront should be pleasant.

Japan Guide has info about just about everywhere else too. All the following have pages there. In Tokyo city, Tokyo, Shibuya and Shinjuku stations are about a half hour away from Yokohama station with many direct trains per hour. Many other destinations can be reached with a transfer or two.

You will see little that is old in Yokohama or Tokyo. I recommend Nihon Minkaen, a fine collection of old houses from all over Japan. You can easily visit in a half day. The simplest way to get there might be Yokohama-->Kawasaki--->Noborito (about 40 minutes, many trains on each segment), then a 25-30 minute walk (about a mile--1.6 km).

Hakone and Kamakura, is possible to go even half a day.

The JR Yokosuka Line, about 30 minutes to Kamakura station from Yokohama station.

Take the Enoden from Kamakura station, Hase-dera Temple and Buddha get off at Hase station.

You can go in an hour if you use the Shinkansen to Hakone Yumoto Station from JR Yokohama Station. Can be reached if there is one and a half hours if you do not use.

I think Hakone and Kamakura in a half day is bit too much. Kamakura itself requires more than half day but you can just choose main parts. If you still have energy, you can take JR directly to Tokyo and have a dinner Yuraku-cho or somewhere.

Definitely add Kamakura to the list! It's less than a half hour from Yokohama (several trains per hour). If I only had a half day, I might do this (links to all at http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2166.html ):

Get off at Kitakamakura station and visit Engakuji Temple (it's at the train station--follow everyone else). Next visit the much quieter Jochiji Temple across the road. Back to the train station to find a taxi, and go to Diabutsu (the Great Buddha). From there, walk to Hasedera, then take the Enoden tram to Kamakura station. If time allows, you can walk to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu shrine.

My expression was bad.

Better to go at different times of the day is good Kamakura and Hakone.

It is possible to go hot spring is open until 23:00.

However, it is going to be a tight schedule.
