Unique design

It was good to drop by this place to observe the unique design and capture some photos for memory. There are ample parking under the pier building.

I loved the innovative style for a pier / boat dock with arrival / departure building. The effect of all the untreated wood is very different and some cool seating too.

This is a great walk to do to, beware that if it is windy you will have a terrible time though. We decided to walk the pier after visiting the red brick shop. The way that the pier is shape is really neat, and it offers some pretty easy walking and offers great views of the bay and city.

I spent the entire day in Yokohama with friends and this was a very memorable experience. the Pier is wonderful and one of a kind; all wood plank and very long. An amazing date spot, whether you're in Yokohama or Tokyo (a short 30 min, 400 yen trip away). I didn't go inside the pier, but the outside was beautiful.... More

Looks almost like a futuristic ship itself. Great views all round and a very cool shipping passenger terminal.

The pier is easy to get to by bus or taxi (although the taxi was more convenient with luggage). There is free WiFi on the pier. The location is good, within walking distance from the red brick warehouses, the train station, and a large drug store at the end of the pier, across the boulevard, where it is easy to... More

Very interesting architecture, although totally dwarfed by our cruise ship. Several boutiques and souvenir shops within the terminal which were open quite late into the evening

This is mainly built to handle the cruise ships that dock in Yokohama. And like all things Japanese does it with great efficiency, courtesy and friendliness. The building itself is almost a work of art that seems to flow. It offers numerous places for visitors to view the ships docked alongside, or just look at the water front. There are... More
