For a day trip that’s a mix of cutting edge energy and timeless gardens, let’s go to Yokohama. It’s got a big Japanese garden, Pokemon and art that lights up the night.
First, let’s go to Sankei-en, a venerable stroll garden that has excellent flower displays in every season.
In nearby Okurayama, this park has the most amazing plum blossom display I’ve ever seen.
Yokohama has also got a great Pokemon Center and sponsors must-see art & music events on its lively waterfront.
