It's a very interesting place - transforming passenger terminal to a futuristic architectural art work. I was quite impressed w/ creativity and beauty. Size of Osanbashi was huge and massive - yet could be a quite romantic place.

This facility is well worth a visit as part of a walk around the refurbished waterfront area of Yokohama. There were no cruise ships docked when we visited but we walked the wooden/grassed structure which reminded me of the overturned hull of a giant ship! Inside is a big arrivals hall and a performance space. It felt very functional and... More

This is a well designed cruise ship terminal and park. Our cruise ship docked there. This ship terminal is totally different than the other terminals. It incorporates grass and floor boards that look like a skate board park, a few souvenir shops and fee Wi-Fi inside the terminal. In the early afternoon there were locals and tourists coming here to... More

This is well worth a trip, wander around and view all the large ships in port I think it is one off the biggest ports in the world. Not far from here is the up noodle museum and various other attractions. It was great!!!

Great place to watch the world go by and people watch. You can see the boats criss crossing the bay and usually there will be a large cruise ship coming or going.

Looks really great on photo but not much to do. No cafe, souvenir shop or museum. About 15 minute walk or 450 meters from Minatomirai Mirai where I stayed. Visit this together with Red Brick warehouse as they are just across each other.

Our ship docked at this pier during our recent Asian cruise. The pier has a very modern & unique looking cruise terminal. There is free wifi in the terminal, along with shops & tourist information. Very friendly & courteous people at the information desk. The pier is in downtown Yokohama, very walkable to Yamashita Park, the Red Brick Warehouse &... More

My favorite place in the city. Lots of open space with no oppressive power cables overhead. Watch the boats come and go and get a great panorama view of the city and bay. Great place when the weather is nice. Not much shade so on a sunny day, bring a hat! Very interesting architecture that feels good to experience. Be... More

Superb view, including Minatomirai and Mt. Fuji. Fine architecture. Visiting during sunset would be ideal.
