A “Magical” Modern Metropolis
Regardless of what you may have seen in movies, anime, or other big cities, there’s nothing that can quite prepare you for the experience of visiting Tokyo. With its glitter of neon lights (like stars in the night sky), small izakaya bar alleys, world-class cuisine, deep-rooted culture, and long history, Tokyo is truly a magical city.
A Journey on the Seas!
Consequently, if you’re traveling through and wish to see more Japanese cities, outside of Tokyo, you might consider hopping on a cruise at Tokyo’s Yokohama Cruise Port. Opened in 1850 this port was Japan’s first modern, international trading port. Today, the majority of cruise ships dock at Yokohama Port’s Osanbashi Pier, located 20 miles (32 km) southwest of Tokyo.
