Here's a quick glimpse at Yokohama, about 45 mins or less from Tokyo.
(depending on your mode of transporation) Imho, its more of an entertainment-shopping-corporate-y & officey place which has all
the delights, a major city like it has to offer.
:p I still prefer the rural & suburb areas of Japan

The Cosmo Clock,
Yokohama & the world's largest clock.
It was the world's largest ferris wheel when it was built in 1989.
Interestingly , its seating capacity is 480 people at a go.

It sure is one slow
but great bird's
eye view of
Yokohama City.

Maybe luck
wasn't really
on his side?
He doesn't seem
too happy with
his capsule toy.

I like how the little
colorful houses

are offset by
the drab,
taller buildings

in their background.

Spotted these
cute bunmoticons
at a bakery where
we were having lunch.

You'll know a style is the pinnacle of the pattern world when it is used as the design of a manhole cover in Yokohama! Leopard prints are
still quite in!

Her lovely portrait
shows how almost
absolutely straight
her back is!

Well, ladies & gents, that brings Yokohama to a wrap! I can't decide which little gem in Tokyo to feature next, so tune in for more!
much love :)
