And it is very worth-while to check on the sign whether the train is 
local (blue on the sign), express (red), limited express (orange) since 
it makes a huge difference in the time it takes to get into Tokyo.

The local/express status changes along the path - a train might start 
off as local on the Minatomirai line and become express or limited as it 
continues from Yokohama station.

> It depends where you are going.   There are lots of trains that get there in a similar amount of time.   For example, I went up to the Omotesando neighborhood by taking the Minatomirai line, which changed to two other lines without me having to change trains.   Express most of the way.   If you are going to the Ginza, you can switch at Yokohama station to the Tokaido line (IIRC) and that has expresses that get you there pretty fast.   You can also switch to the Keikyu line at Yokohama, and it is pretty great from a tourist perspective, more so than the Tokaido line.
