The second largest city in Japan and the capital city of the Kanagawa Prefecture, Yokohama sits in Tokyo Bay on the main island of Honshu. This is the major commercial hub of the Greater Tokyo Area and a global hot spot for many of the world's leading tech companies. In fact over 3,500 technology companies have major operations in Yokohama such as Apple, Samsung and other prominent IT operations. Yokohama is Japan's harbor and port city that is a modern metropolis with huge market opportunities, a lively business ecosystem and international exposure. And, now there are a huge number of coworking venues opening their doors.
Here you will find support programs and resources for foreign companies who wish to expand into Japan, such as the Yokohama World Business Support Center which offers free incubation offices purposely designed for foreign companies to access legal and tax experts, as well as business consultants. Yokohama has easy connections to airports and you can reach the bustling center of Tokyo is under 30 minutes.
One of the most popular cities in the whole of Japan, Yokohama provides a beautiful waterfront environment for after-work antics, plenty of cultural activities to keep the artsy crowd smiling and the foodaholic will go gaga at the cafes and restaurants dishing up world-class dining. You can grab your favorite "dango" (aka rice dumplings dripping a sweet topping), indulge in some yum cha amidst the chaotic Chinatown or saunter around the Sankei-en Garden (botanical park) with its Japanese buildings from different eras. If that doesn't tempt, then head to the Minato Mirai district on the seaside when you have finished your day in your coworking venue.
