Getting around

Yokohama is served by four railway companies (Japan Railways, Tokyu Railways, Keikyu Railways and Sagami Railways, better known as Sotetsu), two municipal subway lines and a bus network that is operated partly by the city and partly by private bus companies.

The city has two major railway stations: Yokohama Station and Shin-Yokohama Station ("New Yokohama Station"). Train lines of all four railway companies and the subway line pass through Yokohama Station, which is located in the city center. Shin-Yokohama Station, on the other hand, is located outside of the city center, about ten minutes from Yokohama Station by the JR Yokohama Line or the municipal subway. The shinkansen (bullet trains) stop at Shin-Yokohama Station.

Most parts of central Yokohama can be explored on foot. For example, it is very pleasant to walk from Minato Mirai along the waterfront to Yamashita Park, visiting Osanbashi Pier along the way, and then proceed from Yamashita Park to the nearby Yamate district or Chinatown.

For those who prefer not to walk long distances, there is the Akaikutsu Loop Bus which connects Sakuragicho Station with most sights of interest in central Yokohama, and the Bayside Blue Bus which runs between Yokohama Station, Minato Mirai and other sights in central Yokohama. Buses run every 30-40 minutes, and the fare is 220 yen per ride or 500 yen for a day pass which is also valid on other buses and the municipal subway in central Yokohama.

The Suica and Pasmo prepaid cards, as well as eight IC cards from other major cities of Japan, can be used on virtually all trains, subways and buses in Yokohama, including the Akaikutsu Loop Bus.

Furthermore, it is also possible to travel by boat. The Seabass travels between Yokohama Bay Quarter (about 500 meters from Yokohama Station's east exit), Minato Mirai and Yamashita Park approximately every 15 minutes. Half of the services travel nonstop to Yamashita Park (15 minutes, 700 yen), while the others make two stops in Minato Mirai (10 minutes, 440 yen to Pacifico Convention Center; 20 minutes, 600 yen to Red Brick Warehouses) along the way.
