Minato Mirai 21, Yokohama: 17 reviews and 30 photos

  The Nippon-maru in Minato-mirai, Yokohama.
by worldkiwi

This new waterfront centre for Yokohama is a very impressive urban environment. Development is clearly still happening.
The Queen's Square Buildings and the Landmark Tower dominate this "Docklands" type place, with the huge ferris-wheel at Cosmoworld (brilliantly set alight at night) and the Nippon Maru moored in its basin, setting the scene nicely.
Make sure to take time to wander around this area.

Directions: Nearest train station is Sakuragicho. There is also a new underground/subway line running through the area and the Minato-mirai station is directly linked to the Yokohama central station.
