Located within a five-minute walk from Sakuragicho Station on JR Line and Yokohama Municipal Subway or Bashamichi Station on Minatomirai Line, Far East Village Hotel Yokohama offers easy access to both tourist attractions and business destinations. The hotel encourages its guests to “Live Like a Local.” Each Village Hotel provides guests with a Village Passport which details unique experiences that guests can enjoy within the vicinity of the hotel. This includes information on nearby restaurants, cafés, and attractions that locals often visit.
Commenting on the reason for expansion into Yokohama, Arthur Kiong, Chief Executive Officer of Far East Hospitality Management said, “At Far East Hospitality, we are constantly looking at ways to expand our footprint in the region. As intra-Asia travel is likely to increase in the future, countries such as Japan will be even more in demand. We are excited that we have the opportunity to open our second hotel in Japan within a year and we now have presence in 2 of the most popular cities in Japan. Both of our hotels are synergistic in that they cater to domestic travellers looking to experience a flavour of Singapore even when travelling for a functional reason between Tokyo and Yokohama. This hospitality concept is relevant especially through this season where international travel is still largely on hold. Hence, domestic tourism will be the main staple for some time to come and FEH want to be in the markets such as Japan where the domestic tourism growth is robust.“

The hotel also plays various music genres based on the days’ time, creating a comfortable and homely environment. Guests will also be able to enjoy Yokohama’s famous confectionery and Singaporean snacks at the lobby, lounge, and breakfast buffet at the restaurant (after September).
