Yokohama Waterfront, Minato Mirai

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.

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
