The Yokohama Convention and Visitors Bureau has recently produced a set of four videos to draw attention to the city as a major tourist destination and heighten awareness about its attractions.
The new fast-paced and topical videos are designed to encourage foreigners to visit Yokohama. American Matthew Gammon, a resident of Yokohama and Art Director of the multimedia company, Bright Wave Media, produced the videos for the city.
“Yokohama stands out as a world-class city that is full of vibrant communities, history, and sights. I think these videos will provide potential visitors with a small slice of what makes Yokohama an enjoyable and beautiful city, and hope they will encourage a fresh new generation of people to visit our city.”
The videos showcase Yokohama’s fascinations in the areas of sightseeing, music, food, and art & culture.

From the glittering futuristic skyline and amusement areas of Minatomirai to Japan’s largest Chinatown, Yokohama serves as an exciting, eye-catching, multicultural tourist destination.

“Yokohama’s Art: Blending Tradition & Culture” (Art & Culture)
Having been the port city at the epicenter of Japan’s opening up to the West, Yokohama still holds onto that unique position of being able to fuse a variety of cultural influences while keeping an eye on the ever-changing and playful landscape of modern art and expression.
