Yokohama International Passenger Terminal, also known as Osanbashi or Yokohama Port, is located at Osanbashi Pier. Osanbashi Pier, located between Minato Mirai and Yamashita Park / Chinatown, is the most important international port terminal for Japan due to its proximity to Tokyo many cruise lines from around the world stop by.
The 400 meter long pier has walkways and green spaces that are open to the public. It was originally built in 1894, but converted into a passenger terminal in 2002. The pier is one of the best places in Yokohama to get an unobstructed view of the Minato Mirai skyline. There are also shops, restaurants and a hall for small exhibitions and events here.
Known as Kujira-no-senaka (whale's back), the rooftop here features some of Yokohama's best views of the city’s skyline. This long walkway is also an ideal place to indulge and relax at the end or at the beginning of your cruise.
Enjoy fine dining with panoramic views of the bay at the 'Subzero' Italian restaurant on the edge of the pier, or more regular fare, an evening bar and speciality coffee line-up at Blue Terminal.
Come across a variety of Japan brands, like Motomachi's Kitamura fashion brand, souvenirs from Royal Wing, or bags by Sensui Kobo.
Osanbashi's inner hall plays host to a variety of seasonal events, often held on weekends, including Beer Fest, held every September.
By train, Osanbashi Pier can be reached via a seven-minute walk from Nihon-Odori Station (Minato Mirai Line) or 15-minute walk from Kannai Station (JR, Yokohama Subway). By bus, Osanbashi Pier is accessible via the Akai Kutsu sightseeing bus (stop C15), from the Motomachi/Chinatown area heading towards Sakuragicho Station. On foot, Osanbashi Pier can be easily accessed from nearby sightseeing spots, between Yamashita Park and the Minato Mirai. The Akarenga Red Brick Warehouse is a 10-minute walk.
