Yokohama's Minato Mirai 21 harbor area was featured in two recent (if one wants to call 1992 and 2001 "recent") Godzilla movies: Godzilla vs. Mothra and Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack. In those movies, the harbor area was reduced to rubble.

Yokohama could surely make a strong case of being the most well-rounded city in all of Japan. The Tokyo neighbour has a bit of everything, from maritime vibes, an exciting history of swashbuckling trade, the largest Chinatown in Japan, fantastic parks and all the mod-cons that come with a booming modern Japanese city. Actually such is the magnetic appeal of Yokohama's Minato Mirai port area, one might struggle to think of the 10 most popular attractions in Yokohama outside of this magnificent area. Anyway, we don't have to. The Internet is littered with so many "Top 10" lists that it's easy enough to find one about Yokohama. Japanese travel booking and community site Jalan (じゃらん) is local, popular and such a list about Yokohama. Not that we need be too specific about the list as it's more than likely that the usual Yokohama attractions will feature. What we want to be concerned with here is how much these attractions cost to enter and thus come up with some ideas for budgeting for trip and sightseeing in Yokohama.
