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

    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.

    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.

      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.

    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…

      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. 🙂

    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

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