The Osanbashi Yokohama International Passenger Terminal is a major port where foreign cruise ships dock during international cruises. With a maximum height of 70m and width of 15m, the steel construction was designed by Alejandro Zaera Polo and Farshid Moussavi (a UK-based architect).
Surrounded by the sea, it features Yokohama’s best views of the Minato Mirai skyline, and the pier is one of the most creative architectural achievements you are ever likely to visit. Made of strips of wood, this long, winding pier also has large sections of grass, making it an ideal place to have a picnic. Depending on how you view it, it can also be a fascinating piece of abstract art. Osanbashi Pier is perfect for a leisurely walk with the family or a romantic date spot.
