Yokohama is a city where the East collides with the West - where traditional Japanese izakaya sit side by side futuristic towers, and tiny ramen bars compete with very high-class restaurants. Down curious side streets or in unconventional neighborhoods you will find some of the best-hidden gems in Yokohama. It is in these places that I think the real spirit of the city begins to shine through! For my top ten list of Yokohama hidden spots, I will tell you some of my favorite galleries, neighborhoods and Yokohama attractions. There will also be enough information about what to do in Yokohama at night so that you can try out the izakaya and restaurants that make the city so special. I hope I can persuade you to see Yokohama off the beaten path - there is so much more to it than meets the eye.
