“An awesome structure!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

It's worth visiting Osanbashi Pier to see the extensive timber decking, quite amazing really. You can walk out to the end and visit shops offering plenty of souvenirs for the tourist. It is a very large area giving you good views back to Yamashita Park and across Yokohama Bay.

“Pier with great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Quiet an impressive pier, with great views of the city and the bay. Also, plenty of places to sit, with seating to either watch a sunrise or sunset from the pier. Looked like an underground terminal, international terminal, I think it was called, but I didn't go in. Nice breeze off the water, and a good place to relax after walking from Chinatown.

“Nice walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

If you feel like an energetic walk then a walk around the pier would suit you with good views all around and a wee cafe serving food and a cold beer to be enjoyed afterwards.

“Unexpectedly Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Who expects a cruise terminal to be beautiful? The wooden floors and ramps are soothing to the feet (the boards have a springiness that reduced stress on your feet) and to the eyes.

You can wander around and up to an open air area where locals like to spend their lunch time. There are steps/bleachers built into the upper deck, however the slope of the deck makes me wonder if there are any performances to watch.

We took a cab rather than walk from the Landmark building but it was worth the visit.

“Different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

By going in this pier you are able to see the bay from a greatly-designed deck. You will enjoy this place when you can go twilighting - with ships coming in and leaving.
