Why visit Yokohama ?

Yokohama location iamge - CruiseDirection

Yokohama has a character all its own

The skyline of Yokohama is considered one of the most beautiful in Japan

You will find Yokohama included in many of the cruise itineraries of top cruise companies such as Princess Cruises, Cunard, and P&O. Yokohama is often included in cruises that also include other countries, such as Russia, the USA, and Canada. Cruises to Yokohama often include a stop off in Alaska. Alternatively, Yokohama is included in cruises which focus specifically on Japan or Asia that include other nearby countries such as China and South Korea. Embarkation for these cruises may be at Yokohama. Passengers on the cruises will be offered excursions at each port, and it is worth reading the reviews and details of these, as if you have only a brief time in port, these excursions may be the best way of seeing the highlights of Yokohama. Alternatively, you may wish to organise your own sightseeing.  

Yokohama is just a 20-minute train ride away from Tokyo, but it would be a shame to just pass through on the way to the capital. The streets are uncrowded and walkable, but its main attractions are the beautiful bay front, its jazz clubs, great international dining, creative arts scene, and its multiple microbreweries.  

Passengers arriving by cruise ships are set down right in the heart of Chinatown. Chinatown has a colourful and vibrant atmosphere, and is the largest Chinatown in Japan. The area was established at the same time as the port, and if you take a stroll around its streets you will come across old architecture and shops that date back to this period. There are also beautiful temples such as the Kwan Tai Temple and the East Gate that give the area its distinct Chinese culture.  

The pier is a good place to get a view of the skyline, but it really comes into its own at night. Look out for the Landmark Tower, which is the second tallest building in Japan and the Cosmo Clock 21, a brightly lit and unusual landmark. Yamshita Park offers a stunning vista as well as beautiful green landscapes.  

Yokohama is renowned for its art scene and the Yokohama Museum of Art is well worth visiting. The museum houses a range of exhibitions, including European headliners and more avant-garde Japanese and Southeast Asian artists. In its permanent collection, it has works by Dali, Miro, and Picasso. Sankei-en is a beautifully landscaped garden which is open to the public. Paths wend their way through the gardens taking you past ponds, tea ceremony houses, 17th century buildings, and a 500-year old pagoda.
