Enjoy Yokohama Day & Night

Fascinating view of the port, hills, and skyline

By Tomoko Kamishima    - 1 min read

The highlights of Yokohama are concentrated within a radius of 1.7 km, surrounded by two train lines: Sakuragi-cho Station to Ishikawa-cho Station on the JR Keihin Tohoku/Negishi Line and Minato Mirai Station to Motomachi-Chukagai Station on the Minato Mirai Line. Yokohama is a city with a port, hills, and beautiful night view.

At Osanbashi Pier, some international cruise ships dock. When they arrive and leave the port, whistles can be heard blowing throughout the town. Many Western-style houses, churches, and some stone buildings stand high on the bluffs of the Yamate District and near Yamashita Park. They make for an exotic atmosphere. And the silhouettes of the modern buildings of the Minato Mirai District create beautiful geometric patterns in the twilight. The night view is more than gorgeous.

Enjoy Yokohama day and night, and all year around!

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS:  An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here.  日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。
