Overview
More
When Japan emerged from centuries of isolation in the mid-19th century, Yokohama was a tiny seaside village, home to only 100 people or so. But as the tide of internationalization rose, a port was established and Yokohama began to grow as a gateway to Japan. Yokohama is now a leading international trading port, the second largest city in Japan after Tokyo. Situated just a short distance along the coast from the Japanese capital, and within easy reach of Haneda Airport, Yokohama is now a magnet for tourists not just from Japan but from every corner of the world; it's a place everyone wants to visit. Minato Mirai 21 is a modern urban development that was created, and continues to evolve, on 186ha of land. A shipbuilding facility that used to divide Yokohama's two main urban centers on Tokyo Bay was relocated, and additional land was reclaimed from the sea. In 1989 an exposition was held to mark the 100th anniversary of Yokohama's city status and the 130th anniversary of the opening of Yokohama Port. Following that event development gathered momentum, and now the area boasts office blocks, commercial facilities, hotels, amusement parks and convention facilities, as well as such cultural amenities as art museums and concert halls. This, the new face of Yokohama, offers an entire spectrum of urban functions and attracts more than 70 million visitors every year. Minato Mirai 21 is full of great experiences. The liberating expanse of Tokyo Bay and the dynamic appeal of the contemporary architecture contribute to the area's strikingly unusual beauty, which you can enjoy from the elegant surroundings of several first-class hotels. For the shopper, more than 600 stores offer an astonishingly broad selection of goods ranging from top fashion brands to animation character merchandise. Apart from excellent Japanese cuisine, delicious food from around the world is available at more than 200 restaurants. Theme parks offer exciting rides, parks a place to sit and enjoy the seascape. Packed with pleasure, Minato Mirai 21 is a fun place to visit with family and friends at any time of year, on any occasion, and for so many different reasons. If you move on to the area beyond Minato Mirai 21, you'll find intriguing glimpses of a fascinating history in the Kannai district, which developed quickly in the second half of the 19th century after the Port of Yokohama opened, and beyond Kannai you'll arrive at Japan's largest Chinatown. Yokohama offers points of interest that no other city can match. And just a day trip away are some of the best hot spring baths in Japan at Hakone, as well as the globally renowned beauty of Mt. Fuji. So after a day of fun in Minato Mirai 21, you can spend the night at one of the area's great hotels and then the next day you can be soaking in an onsen or admiring a view of Mt. Fuji. That is the special appeal of a relaxing holiday based in Japan's new leading tourism and leisure destination: Minato Mirai 21.

This area is mainly taken up by carnival rides etc aimed at children. Adjacent to this is the Red Brick Warehouse that provides a market stall atmosphere for shoppers

Walkways are nice and clean, and allows one to appreciate the water views and the cityscape of Yokohama. It's also free! Aka-renga has cafes and restaurants; there are seasonal events on the open space across it too. Recommendable!

The Minato Mirai area is beautiful, especially at night, and theres a few things worth doing in the area. It was pretty quiet when we went in April, especially compared to Tokyo where we had stayed before.

It's a very beautiful place to visit in Yokohama for shopping, dining, or even just taking a nice leisurely stroll along the streets with interesting architecture and a beautiful seaside park. Not a bad way to spend a lazy afternoon with your family.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Minato Mirai. Located along the waterfront, Minato Mirai is a very popular place that has a lot to offer! The high-rises, the Landmark Tower and Cosmo World Ferris Wheel are some of its major attractions!

Take any train (JR and Keikyu) that will get you to Yokohama station and once in Yokohama station get on the Minato Mirai Subway Line.
