Whatever you’re looking for in Yokohama, you’ll find it at the bay-front Yokohama Minato Mirai 21. With shops, hot springs, museums and even an amusement park, Yokohama Minato Mirai 21 has something for everyone.
To appreciate the sheer scale of this sprawling center of entertainment, leisure and business, make a visit to Yokohama Landmark Tower’s observation deck and view the city and bay from 296 meters up. There’s no better place for a shopping spree, with Queen’s Square, Landmark Plaza, World Porters and Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse shopping malls all offering a multitude of stores. Food-lovers can enjoy a range of bars and supermarkets, as well as some of the best restaurants in Yokohama.
The bustling waterfront also has a few options for the more culturally-inclined travelers. The Yokohama Museum of Art features no less than seven galleries including one dedicated exclusively to photography. Hop on board the Nippon Maru ship, now permanently docked on the bay, which houses the Yokohama Port Museum. Foodies and families alike will want to pay homage to the simple but mighty instant noodle at the Cup Noodles Museum.
