Capacious Metropolis, Yokohama

The campus of YNU is located in Yokohama, a big city with convenient access to Tokyo and Haneda Airport. Less crowded than Tokyo, this charming city not only attracts many foreign and local visitors, but also provides an excellent living environment as a safe and comfortable commuter town.

Having experienced a unique transition from a small fishing village to Japan's second largest city in just 150 years, it is the starting point of Western culture in Japan, including railways, daily newspapers, city lights, water supply, tennis, and beer.
