Yokohama city consists of 18 wards and Tsurumi is one of them. The population of Tsurumi-ku is appr. 270000 and the ward covering an area of 33 square kilometre. Japan Rail PassSince 2004 I travel nearly every year to Japan. The rail pass made my life easier to discover all those amazing places in my favourite country. This regional commercial hub is highly industrialized (esp. the area along the coast) and used by many to commute from here to the center of Yokohama and Tokyo.

History

In 1927 Yokohama city integrated Tsurumi town as one of the wards. In the World War 2 air raid the whole area got destroyed.
