Cheap accommodation in Yokohama

The Mainichi Daily News has an interesting article on Cheap accommodation in Yokohama. There is a lot of inexpensive accommodation in the Kotobuki district of Yokohama’s Naka-ku, and it’s being promoted as a good place for foreigners to stay. “Since June, about 70 foreign visitors from 15 countries including Sweden, Italy and Malaysia have stayed in the area, paying as little as 3,000 yen a night for self-catering accommodation. The area is popular among overseas guests because it is close to tourist spots such as Chinatown and Yamashita Park.”

The article talks about Yokohama Hostel Village, an organisation that promotes this cheap accommodation to foreigners. The rooms seem small as you would expect, but well-located. Yokohama is very close to Tokyo by train, but it also has a lot of attractions in its own right. I enjoyed the Cosmo Clock 21 Ferris wheel, though it can make some scary noises when a strong wind is blowing.
