A Temple and Lanterns in Yokohama's Chinatown Yokohama is the capital city of Kanagawa prefecture, and is just south of Tokyo in the Kanto region. Due to its location along the bay, Yokohama became widely known to the world as a trading city in 1859. It is the second largest city in Japan.

One of Yokohama’s largest attractions is its Chinatown. With over 500 restaurants, and Kanteibyo, a temple built in 1873, in the center of it all, Yokohama’s Chinatown is a must-see for many tourists.

Sanmamen ramen was created in Yokohama’s Chinatown over 60 years ago. This local ramen’s name refers to three fresh ingredients: bean sprouts, pork and Chinese cabbage. The noodles are typically thin and served in a salt or soy-sauce flavored broth. It is topped with a sauce prepared with all three ingredients.

Shin-Yokohama is also home to the famous Ramen Museum. If you crave a bowl of noodles, step inside the classic 1958 replica of Shitamachi town and slurp away!

What makes a successful AEON teacher?Yokohama School Manager Kenji

In an employee, flexibility is very important. All people are different, and an employee needs to be able to adjust to each student’s needs. The student should not have to adjust to the teacher. If the teacher adjusts to the student, then we can ensure that are students will be happy as students, and satisfied as customers. By doing this, it also allows each individual to grow as a teacher.
