What to Do/See in Yokohama in One Day


I'll be in Tokyo, and I'd like to visit Yokohama as a day trip. What are the must-see sights there? I would like to maximize the amount of things to see there, and I don't mind hanging around there in the evening (as long as there's a train back to Tokyo in the night). In addition, I'd like to see the must-see sights there, but I don't want to see things that take many hours to see, like a big museum, aquarium, etc. Also, any off-beat things to see would be cool too. Finally, what kinds of food or food spots are there to go there? Your input is appreciated. Thanks.

Yamashita Park, Chinatown (check out the really fancy temples there) where you can also get some decent food of course, admire the Victorian architecture of Kannai, climb up the hill to the Yamate area and visit the old foreigner homes, peek in at the Foreigners' Cemetery, stroll Motomachi for the latest trends, go up Landmark Tower, visit the Hikawa-maru and other old ships open to the public, admire the Sogo Clock as it strikes the hours and dolls play It's A Small World, visit the Sankei-en Garden....

No shortage of things to do at all. Plenty of trains too.

You might also consider visiting Kamakura and Enoshima, which are not far away from Yokohama.

A good day trip starts at Kamakura and Enoshima as Yobeekool suggested. On the way back, go to Yokohama. Yokohama doesn't actually offer that many worthy sights so perhaps a walk through the city starting in the late afternoon plus a dinner, plus a little more exploring afterward should be fine.

Trains run between Yokohama and Tokyo until around midnight. Plan your visit using Hyperdia:
