Yokohama View

  Jan 14th, 2010

The Landmark Tower in Yokohama gives a great view of the whole City. It is the tallest building in Japan at 296 metres. The view from the 69th floor observatory deck is great on a clear day.

      You are welcome. Yokohama is a cool place and so close to Tokyo 🙂

  3. rob7138 says:

    Great pics! Such a beautiful day and the theme park was empty? Must put Yokohama down on my list to visit when I get to Japan.

      Couldn’t see anyone from up on the 69th floor.

    daaaaaaaaamn. Awesome view !
    I’ve always walked past/underneath/next to landmark tower but never been inside. Didn’t know they had an observatory (tough a building that large it’s gotta) And even higher than my favorite observatory in Tokyo; Mori art tower .

    I love Yokohama, it’s a totally different vibe from Tokyo, and indeed so close, you can easily get a train there and depending which one/ where you get on it can take 30 minutes. Too bad it’s winter, there are some nice parks there.

    P.S Did you ever go to the “Raumen” museum in Shin Yokohama ? It’s amazing ! Look it up if you haven’t heard of it.

    1. shibuya246 says:

      I had planned to go to the Ramen Museum, but we changed plans when it rained and went to the nearby Mitsubishi Center instead. Ramen musem next time for sure.

  5. Aux says:

    Lovely shots – such a great view from up there! I’m really looking forward to getting down to Yokohama next time I’m in Japan : )

    Meanwhile, does that rollercoaster in #46 finish in the water? It just seems to stop there. #21 cuts it off just above the point in question…

    1. shibuya246 says:

      Well spotted. The roller coaster goes into the hole where the water is and comes out the other side. I didn’t ride it but it must be a strange feeling to almost hit the ground near the water. 🙂

  6. Beautiful day for photos. Pretty awesome that you can see the Tokyo skyline from Yokohama 🙂

    1. shibuya246 says:

      Thanks. I’m not sure which structure came first?

    via @Shibuya246: Yokohama View, Japan Photo-Post | Shibuya246 http://bt.io/DIKe Another place to visit if i ever make it over there. In all saying a great set of photos, and a trip w/your family all wrapped up in one.

    Yokohama was definitely my favorite spot that i visited when i went to Japan. It was so refreshing and the air felt nice compared to Tokyo. I find myself staring mostly at Yokohama stadium.. im so amazed by it for some reason lol

    1. shibuya246 says:

      A great City for sure.

  10. shibuya246 says:

    Looks like some dirt on the lens here? What is a good way to clean the lenses?

    1. Azriel says:

      I think its just that u are taking the pic from inside the helicopter, and windows is dirt :P!

  11. shibuya246 says:

    Zo no Hana Koen (Elephants Nose Park), originally part of the landscape. Other land around it is reclaimed from the water.

  12. shibuya246 says:

    Yamashita Koen looks quite small from up here.

  13. shibuya246 says:

    Dirt on the lens here. I think it might be on the inside.
