Japan is known for some of their outlandish styles, but just because you are not in Harajuku doesn’t mean you won’t find any fashionable stores. Like Tokyo, Yokohama has high end brands stores like Gucci and popular stores such as Uniqlo and H&M. You will have lots of face to face interactions with people, which makes it great part-time job if you want to work and practice your Japanese at the same time.
Why teach English? Because it's a flexible, fun, and a great introduction to the working world in Japan. While some schools require that you have a TOEFL certification or a year of teaching experience; in general, a bachelor degree is the most important qualification. Some schools don’t even require that, just a friendly attitude and willingness to work hard. If you are not a native speaker, don’t worry - a lot of schools only judge based on fluency. Teaching English also has a good hourly rate. There is a reason people from all over the world come to teach English in Japan.
