Go at sunset or at night to have an amazing view of the city. If you like architecture, you must go, is a very impressive structure which happen to also be a very beautiful place to walk . It is safe and quiet with small groups of friens and couples thst go there to contemplate the lights of Yokohama.

We came for a conference party. The party was great, and what a venue! The pier is beautiful, with a lot of wood in its construction and also grass lawns. There are great views of the bay and also the big buildings of Minato Mirai. If you miss it after your visit, there is a webcam.

A very convenient location to visit – minutes from Bashamichi street, the Yamashita Park and Nihon Odori sta. From a distance the whole place looks like a giant wavy-like ferry/structure. Yet it has the modern architectural-style and is actually a rather unusual pier - an extensive timber decking, amazing! It is a very large spacious area giving one an excellent... More

For taking pics of Yokohama port, I stayed in Yokohama for 3 night & 1 day. I suggest that here is the best spot for taking pic of Yokohama port. You may see the completed skyline of Yokohama builds.

It is like a park on top of a ship. The view from the deck is magical especially during sunset. And it also gives a very beautiful perspective of the Yokohama skyscrapers.

This modern pier was designed by two architects based in UK. The complecate curve decks are covered with the wooden panels and set the grass gurdens in places. It is a 15-minute walk from Minato Mirai area or Kannai station. Sometimes an ocean liner moors on this pier. I heard this pier accommodates the large ship greater than 100kGT, but... More

This place looks like a giant ferry or something. Very modern and definitely a nice area to walk. From a far it looks so huge. I wish there were more places like this in Tokyo. I really like what Yokohama has to offer in terms of a modern city and it has become one of my favorite big cities. The... More
