Five Ways Yokohama Ensures
Successful Meetings and Incentive Tours

Global Standard

Yokohama is an international city and a world leader in high-end hospitality. Yokohama City Visitors Bureau has the expertise needed to make participants of meetings and incentive tours feel welcome and to provide support that is tailor-made to their needs and interests.

We are also prepared and ready to assist in maximizing the motivational benefits of incentive events. Augmenting that support is the spirited backing of local businesses and the people of Yokohama, who pride themselves on making visitors feel at home in their exciting city.

These are just a few of the companies based outside Japan that have recently hosted large incentive events in Yokohama:
AIA (Thailand)
Cathay Life Insurance (Taiwan)
Hanbaobao Pte. Ltd. (Singapore, Licensee of McDonald's)
Microsoft (United States)
Nan Shan Life Insurance (Taiwan)
Nutrimetics (Australia)
Prudential Life Insurance (Republic of Korea)

International Connectivity

Direct access to Yokohama is available from anywhere in the world, thanks to the city’s proximity to two international airports: Tokyo International Airport (Haneda Airport) and Narita International Airport. The airport arrival and transfer process is convenient for large groups in particular.

Unique Atmosphere

Yokohama is a city of unique character. The community’s cosmopolitan and storied heritage is palpable in every street and district, while the sophistication of the metropolis is displayed in the variety of its shopping, dining, and sightseeing opportunities. Yokohama is elegant, fun, and rewarding whether you are visiting for work or leisure.

Memorable Tourism

Stroll through the stunning grounds and historic buildings of the Sankeien Garden, wonder at one of the largest aquariums in Japan, dive into the colorful culinary delights of Chinatown, or take a day trip to the ancient capital Kamakura. Yokohama and its surrounding areas reward visitors with unrivaled sightseeing opportunities.

Omotenashi Hospitality

YCVB delivers full support to visitors, making sure they enjoy their time in Yokohama. Representatives of the bureau are on hand to help organizers with site inspections, ensuring optimal event conditions through a perfect match of facilities and events. The bureau also coordinates cultural programs for visitors, provides free promotional materials for events, and can provide banners to greet event participants. Yokohama is an exceptionally welcoming city that can serve as the ideal stage for motivating corporate team members.
While our standard is a global one, we also add a touch of omotenashi (Japanese hospitality) to proceedings to ensure that your experience is truly one that can be had only in Yokohama.
