Yokohama

Yokohama, adjacent to south of Tokyo, is the second largest city in Japan with 3.5 million populations. Yokohama has been developed as a seaport.

A newly developed water-front area “Minatomirai 21” has huge office space, shopping centers, restaurants, hotels, and convention centers. This area is extremely beautiful at night.

Views from Landmark Tower of Minatomirai 21, the highest building in Japan (296m), is fantastic. Like Roppongi Hills Tower in Tokyo, the Landmark Tower commands a most beautiful view of the entire Yokohama because it is not surrounded by skyscrapers of similar height.

The Landmark Tower is built in the newly developed waterfront district. Various objects in the waterfront district is colorfully illuminated at night, and reflection on the water is also impressive.
