Reopened with temporary hours: 11:00 to 20:00 (Last admission 19:45)

Latest on Yokohama Cosmo World

When it was built in 1989, Cosmo Clock 21 was the tallest Ferris wheel in the world, and it is still the world's biggest clock. It is also a relaxing way to enjoy wonderful views of Yokohama's harbor and modern waterfront architecture. If you plan to take the fifteen minute trip just as night falls, you can watch the city lights come on as the last of the daylight fades from the sky.

 I came to Japan in 2003 to teach English. I lived in Shiga prefecture for 1 year, and it still holds a special place in my heart. I lived in Kyoto for 9 years, then moved to Machida, Tokyo in 2014 after meeting my Japanese partner. I love to take photos, and my Japan in Pictures Facebook page has some 40,000 followers. I have been the Regional Partner for Yamanashi Prefecture since 2014.I am enjoying exploring the prefectures around Tokyo (I like to get off the beaten track), and I hope the photos and stories I share will encourage more people to discover this wonderful country.
