About a five-minute walk from Shinko Pier takes you to Yokohama Minato Mirai Manyo Club, the perfect place to soothe away the fatigue from your voyage.
This multi-use facility eases body and soul with geothermal baths, rest areas, meals, massage and more. Luxuriate in natural hot-spring baths, with varieties of bath such as open-air bath, cedar bath and rock bath. In the “footbath garden” on the ninth floor, take in the view of Minato Mirai while you soak your tired feet in a footbath that’s out of the ordinary. Manyo Club offers a full palette of other services, including dining, massage, exfoliating scrub, beauty treatments, rock baths, karaoke, table tennis, an arcade, a rest area and even an area where you can sleep.
Across the street from Yokohama Minato Mirai Manyo Club is CUPNOODLES MUSEUM YOKOHAMA. Through theater, animation and interactive exhibits, this museum showcases the creative vision by which Momofuku Ando, founder of Nissin Food Products Co., Ltd., invented Chicken Ramen, the world’s first instant ramen noodle product. In one of the museum’s activities, you can select from a menu of ramen soups and toppings to create your very own, one-of-a-kind CupNoodles product. Another attraction here is NOODLES BAZAAR WORLD NOODLES ROAD, a food court where you can taste noodles from throughout Asia, Europe and the rest of the world.
Walk about 10 minutes along the waterfront and you’ll reach the symbol of Yokohama, Yokohama Landmark Tower. On the 69th floor of this 70-floor, 296m skyscraper is Sky Garden, an observation floor where you can take in a 360° sweeping view of Yokohama.
If the weather cooperates you can see as far as Mt. Fuji, Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Skytree. Observing the city below as dusk turns to night is one of the great pleasures of this attraction. (Sky Garden is closed until April 24, 2020 for renovations.)
Gazing at Yokohama from the ocean, we can see that the city has one more architectural symbol: Cosmo Clock 21, the Ferris wheel at the Yokohama Cosmo World amusement park adjacent to Landmark Tower.This giant Ferris wheel lights up the Yokohama night sky with an artistic illumination display of some 16,700,000 lights.And of course, you can ride Cosmo Clock 21. Admission to Cosmo World is free, so you only need to buy a ticket for Cosmo Clock 21 to enjoy a 15-minute ride in the sky above Yokohama. Four of the gondolas are see-through, with transparent floors and roofs, so if you like experiencing high places this is the ride for you.
Now that you’ve enjoyed the Yokohama scenery, is it time for some souvenir shopping and a bite to eat?
One of Yokohama’s highest-profile sightseeing attractions is Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse. This site, which actually consists of two warehouses on the shore of Yokohama Bay, has a 100-year history. Warehouse No. 1 contains halls and multipurpose spaces, where plays, concerts and dance performances are presented year-round. At Warehouse No. 2, it’s all about eating and shopping, with over 50 restaurants, cafés and boutiques. Many of the goods sold here have a special affinity with Yokohama, making Warehouse No. 2 the perfect spot for casual dining, shopping and souvenir hunting.
