The capital city of Kanagawa Prefecture is located about 30 km (18 mi) south of Tokyo, on Tokyo Bay in the Kantō region on the southern side of the island Honshu, Japan's main island.

Until the mid 19th century Yokohama was a small fishing village when it became a center stage of Japan's foreign policy. The US forced Japan to open some of its ports for doing business - in the interest of the United States. So, Japan built a port in a somewhat save distance from its capital Edo (today Tokyo). The Port of Yokohama was opened in 1859 and became very quickly the base of foreign trade in Japan.

Today Yokohama has a population of about 3.7 million inhabitants (2013). The cities of Chiba, Kawasaki, Sagamihara, Saitama, Tokyo, and Yokohama constitute the Combined Urban Area of Greater Tokyo, the world's most populous metropolitan area with nearly 38 million people, this is almost one-third of Japan's population.

The city of Yokohama is a major commercial hub of the Greater Tokyo Area with shipping, biotechnology, and semiconductor industries. Multinational carmaker Nissan moved its headquarters to Yokohama in 2010.
