The Minato Mirai, translated “port of the future” in English, is an urban development project built on reclaimed land near the original city centers of Yokohama. Its landscape is indeed futuristic
with iconic structures such as the Yokomaha landmark tower, the Cosmo Clock 21 which remained the world’s tallest ferris wheel until 1997 and the Intercontinental Hotel. Minato mirai is an important center of business and tourism and has a lot to offer in terms of shopping and dining experience. One of the strong point is the impressive view it offers day or night.
This is a panoramic view of Minato Mirai as seen from our room at the Intercontinental Hotel. Many attractions, including the Ferris Wheel, are only a short walk away.
For dining, we went to the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse where many shops, restaurants and bars are located. The building-wide outdoor balcony on the upper floor offers a fantastic view of the city.
