A beautiful and modern pier, offers nice views to the city. A good place if you have free time, but if you go to Minato Mirai area, you can miss it.

The pier and it's area are beautifully designed. The pier itself looks like giant ship or wave structure. Wood and white colours are simple, leaving room for multi-faceted construction. It gives overall impression of simplicity and filling in surrounding sea. Nice place for a walk. Also be prepared to meet many young couples doing photo shoot.

Pleasant walk with good views of Yokohama Bay and attractive area to rest a while. The model of Yokohama Bay area inside the departure hall building was well done and interesting as were the models of different ships using the port over the years.

Yokohama, the port city is very walkable and it's easy to get to from a direct Tokyo subway. WIth its port background and walkability its easy to visit all the sites as you cross bridge after bridge. One particular one that takes just that bit more time due to its size is Osanbashi Pier with fabulous views of Yokohama and... More

Attractive building but chaotic, hot and hard to understand ! We were there to get on and off a cruise ship. The ramps were steep and the air conditioning did not seem to work.

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.
