Yokohama nightlife has been well known among Japanese people for a long time now, and for many different reasons. But for anyone visiting Japan for the first time, it’s likely that they have no idea what’s hidden here! A famous music and jazz scene combined with a huge selection of izakaya, restaurants and bars mean it attracts many people from all over Japan who want to experience Yokohama at night. Add to this that is the first place in Japan to start brewing beer and you begin to see why we think it is so extraordinary. For me, it is the many small districts each with their own style that make it so special. In some areas you will find atmospheric izakaya and tiny standing bars, but in other parts of the city it can feel like you’re drinking cocktails one hundred years from now, in a city of the future. I’m not really a fan of Yokohama night clubs, I would much prefer to go somewhere where you can start talking to someone, so I will have more of that kind of night in my guide to things to do in Yokohama at night!
