When Landmark Tower and Cosmo Clock 21 are lighted up, cheerful party voices sound out from roofed pleasure boats in the nearby canal, and the skylines of the hotels and other buildings are all illuminated. This is the famous night view of port city, Yokohama. Walking down the Kisha-michi Promenade with friends, sitting on the lawn and chatting with family in front of the Nippon Maru ship, or spending a quiet time with one's partner at the Rooftop Garden of World Porters shopping center, people enjoy this fantastic night view. The viewing spots are easily accessible from JR Sakuragi-cho Station, which is a short 30-minute train ride from Shinagawa Station on the Keihin Tohoku Line. Yokohama tonight might be special for you, too!

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。
