As the capital city of Kanagawa prefecture, Yokohama is an international, industrial and cultural city, whose seaport is the largest in Japan. There are quite a few popular tourist destinations including the old-school Chinatown, cutting edge Minato Mirai 21, Yokohama Landmark Tower, and Yokohama Zoo Zoorasia. Yokohama was just a fishing village until the end of the Edo Period when the port of Yokohama was opened to foreign trade under the pressure from the U.S.. Hence, foreign culture has had a deep influence in Yokohama. Many new things started from Yokohama such as daily newspaper, gaslamps and train terminus.
