We, Japan Housing have created a picture book for children. This book introduces sightseeing spots in Yokohama where our firm is located.
You can enjoy yourself in the exotic city. While you are looking around the city using this book, you might like to come and see Yokohama soon!

We have assembled a team of experienced consultants for this project. Included on that team are, Ms. Akiko Shimada, chairperson, of the Yokohama City Guide (NPO) and Ms. Pae Ann, chairperson of Kanagawa Sumai Support Centre.
Both women are active in community support for foreigners, those visiting and living in Yokohama.
Ms. Shimada previously produced a long running, successful, sightseeing program for Japanese T.V. called “Bura Tamori” in 2011.
So we are confident that this book is beneficial and will assist you during your stay in Japan. No matter if you're here to sightsee or to live in this exciting City of Yokohama!
