Osanbashi Pier is one of the nicest sunset spots in Japan. Easy access, wide open view, photogenic surroundings, and no entrance fee! These are photos from my visit there on a warm night in mid-June. Couples and friends are enjoying the transition of the beautiful orange sky minute by minute. Sunset hunters are enchanted with the beautiful sun-ray road on the water. And a model for a commercial shot is posing against the Minato Mirai skyline. After being satisfied with the breathtaking sunset show, you can take a stroll through Yokohama’s romantic bay area. Both Chinatown and the Kannai district are within walking distance. An index of this series is here.

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。
