Osanbashi Pier

The Osanbashi Pier is the main international passenger cruise ship terminal of Yokohama. The design of the pier is modern and integrates organic elements like grass and wooden planks. Its structure is reminiscent of waves in the water. The top of the pier is a public space which offers an unbeatable view of Yokohama and the Minatomirai skyline. It is in my opinion the best place to take breathtaking photos of Yokohama during daytime, nighttime and the amazing sunsets in between. You can bring some snacks and your favorite drinks for a picnic with an unbeatable scenery.

Jogashima Ferry

The Keikyu Misaki Maguro Pass includes the train pass from Tokyo, a meal in Misaki and a leisure activity. A visit to the onsen, renting a bicycle and purchasing crafts are some of the activities included. We elected to use our pass for a ferry ride connecting the port of Misaki to the island of Jogashima. The ferry ride only lasts several minutes, but is definitely a more pleasant way of heading to Jogashima compared to taking the bus or walking on the bridge linking Misaki and Jogashima.

Not too far to the southwest of the park, on the sourthern coast of the island, you will find an impressive piece of rock (Umanose-doumon) with a big hole in it.

West Jogashima

On the western side of Jogashima island is located a beautiful white lighthouse. Designed by a French engineer, it is one of the oldest of western style in Japan. Sadly, the original was damaged during the great Kanto earthquake but was rebuilt in its present form. This side of the island also features a small market street where several restaurants and gift shops are located. The main attraction of Jogashima is without a doubt its beautiful coast. The many visitors who walk or fish on this side of the island are always under the eagle’s watchful eyes.

Chinenmisaki Park

The Chinenmisaki park is located to the southeast of the main island of Okinawa. The park is popular among tourists because of the impressive view of the coast – it is a great place to take panoramas. The visit of the park does not take too long and can be easily combined with the sacred site Sefa Utaki located nearby.
