About
When Japan emerged from centuries of isolation in the mid-19th century, Yokohama was a tiny seaside village, home to only 100 people or so. But as the tide of internationalization rose, a port was established and Yokohama began to grow as a gateway to Japan. Yokohama is now a leading international trading port, the second largest city in Japan after Tokyo. Situated just a short distance along the coast from the Japanese capital, and within easy reach of Haneda Airport, Yokohama is now a magnet for tourists not just from Japan but from every corner of the world; it's a place everyone wants to visit. Minato Mirai 21 is a modern urban development that was created, and continues to evolve, on 186ha of land. A shipbuilding facility that used to divide Yokohama's two main urban centers on Tokyo Bay was relocated, and additional land was reclaimed from the sea. In 1989 an exposition was held to mark the 100th anniversary of Yokohama's city status and the 130th anniversary of the opening of Yokohama Port. Following that event development gathered momentum, and now the area boasts office blocks, commercial facilities, hotels, amusement parks and convention facilities, as well as such cultural amenities as art museums and concert halls. This, the new face of Yokohama, offers an entire spectrum of urban functions and attracts more than 70 million visitors every year. Minato Mirai 21 is full of great experiences. The liberating expanse of Tokyo Bay and the dynamic appeal of the contemporary architecture contribute to the area's strikingly unusual beauty, which you can enjoy from the elegant surroundings of several first-class hotels. For the shopper, more than 600 stores offer an astonishingly broad selection of goods ranging from top fashion brands to animation character merchandise. Apart from excellent Japanese cuisine, delicious food from around the world is available at more than 200 restaurants. Theme parks offer exciting rides, parks a place to sit and enjoy the seascape. Packed with pleasure, Minato Mirai 21 is a fun place to visit with family and friends at any time of year, on any occasion, and for so many different reasons. If you move on to the area beyond Minato Mirai 21, you'll find intriguing glimpses of a fascinating history in the Kannai district, which developed quickly in the second half of the 19th century after the Port of Yokohama opened, and beyond Kannai you'll arrive at Japan's largest Chinatown. Yokohama offers points of interest that no other city can match. And just a day trip away are some of the best hot spring baths in Japan at Hakone, as well as the globally renowned beauty of Mt. Fuji. So after a day of fun in Minato Mirai 21, you can spend the night at one of the area's great hotels and then the next day you can be soaking in an onsen or admiring a view of Mt. Fuji. That is the special appeal of a relaxing holiday based in Japan's new leading tourism and leisure destination: Minato Mirai 21.

Something for everyone in Yokohama
May 2019 • Solo
Now I’m not a big shopper, but wether your into malls or not it’s still a good place to visit if your in the area. The waterfront walk alongside the shopping malls is very pleasant especially on a warm day, plenty of places to sit and people watch, and boy will there be plenty of people to watch, it’s very popular for locals and tourists alike.
Call in at the ‘Hard Rock’ if you fancy a beer and burger, visit the old 1930s sailing ship in the dock, have a spin on the ferris wheel of get an even better view from the Landmark Tower (tallest in Japan) if it’s a clear day you can easily see Mt Fuji. Then catch the Seabas (sea-bus) to points around the bay.

Splended day trip from Tokyo
Nov 2019
The entire place is very clean and pleasant. The air is crisp and fresh. There was an Okinawan marathon on-going when I went in Nov 2019 but it did not give me any inconvenience. The view is beautiful and I felt so relax to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Highly recommended

Nice place with great view of the harbor
Apr 2019
Minato Mirai is a nice place to walk around. There is a good view of the harbor, especially at night with the lights accenting the view. There are a number of shopping places to explore and an amusement park to enjoy rides.

My parent stayed here and every time i visit them, I'm amazed by the view here in Minato Mirai, this is a wonderful seaside urban area. It also has a great amusement park with a gigantic ferris wheel, I also proposed to my girl friend here in 2019 and succeed. Definitely my favourite spot in the world.
