Activities and Attractions

Yokohama City Port Opening Memorial Hall (Jack's Tower)

Yokohama City Port Opening Memorial Hall, also called as "Jack's Tower," is a building in the neo-renaissance style that opened in 1917. The building is affectionately nicknamed "Jack". "Jack" is designated as a historical heritage building, and also currently serves as the Nakaku Ward Hall. The tip of the clock tower is lit with lights that over-pass the intersection. The lightshow on the red bricks takes you back in time to a different age - Yokohama in its golden era. The orange reflection from the lighting on the bricks is superbly beautiful, and is bound to make you smile. It is close to a Minatomirai Line station, making the building a good starting point for visiting Yokohama night views. Also nominated as a "Japan Heritage Night View".

*The building will be closed from December 2021 to March 2024 [tentative] for conservation and renovation work.
