Yokohama is Frankfurt's most distant partner city. It is located in the Tokyo metropolitan area, the largest conurbation in the world and home to almost 40 million people. Yokohama is a major commercial hub with a large international port.
The main aim of the regular delegation exchanges with Yokohama is to promote dialogue in the areas of business and climate protection. The workshop of a Frankfurt graffiti artist, held in Yokohama as part of a cultural exchange, met with great interest, for example. An annual exchange of students is organised despite the ten thousand kilometres separating the two cities.
