.yokohama is one of the seven Japanese geographical extensions. Yokohama is the second largest city in Japan and also has one of the largest ports in the country.
The registry of the extension intends .yokohama to be a platform to provide information about the city of Yokohama to Internet users, both globally and locally. For citizens, businesses and communities in Yokohama, this is the perfect opportunity to bond with their identity with the city.
The registry believes in the self-regulation of the extension and places no restrictions: anyone anywhere in the world can register their .yokohama domain and share their information about the city with the rest of the world.
The .yokohama extension is under the administration of the GMO Registry. In addition of .yokohama, they also administer other Japanese extensions such as .tokyo or .nagoya.
