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.

Misaki Fish Market, paradise of tuna

The city of Misaki is famous in the Kanto region for its high quality tuna. Dozens of restaurants in the city specialize in seafood and most of them participate in the Maguro train ticket deal. Some of the catches the fishermen bring back to the city are sold at the Misaki fish market. The tuna and seafood products offered there are very diverse. Should you visit on a warm day, don’t miss out the ice cream!

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.

East Jogashima

On the eastern side of Jogashima island is located the Jogashima Prefectural Park which features beautiful gardens and scenic views. 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. Starting from this unusual rock formation, one can enjoy walking along the coast all the way to the western side of Jogashima island.
