The 70-story Landmark Tower, built in 1993, is Japan's second highest skyscraper at 296m, following Abano Harukasu in Osaka at 300m. On the 69th floor is the Sky Garden observatory where you can get views of Yokohama and Tokyo, and on clear days Mount Fuji. The building boasts one of the fastest elevators in the world (45km/h), which takes you to the observatory in 40 seconds.
The lower five floors are occupied by the Landmark Plaza shopping mall, and the Dockyard Garden in the basement is a square surrounded by restaurants. The square's design is a replica of Japan's oldest dockyard which was in operation in the port of Yokohama from 1896 until 1973.

The mall is huge and multi-level. They have a 5 star hotel here but we only got to visit the 360 degree viewing deck. The elevator, one of the fastest in the world was a short but nice experience! We get to buy some souvenirs and the staff are all friendly. Trip to Japan should always include this place and the city of Yokohama. Great people, lots of fun things to do and great food!

I really enjoyed going to the Yokohama Landmark Tower, perhaps because the weather was perfect when we were at the top. It also has one of the fastest elevators in the world. The staff was very friendly as I accidentally bought an extra ticket which they immediately refunded.

Worth visiting! All varieties of eating places with range of price tags! The olace is clean and the standard is above average! I had tried 4 restaurants and eating places! The scenery is good with good ventilating.

We very much recommend going up the landmark tower. When we visited at a late Tuesday afternoon there were no waiting lines at all. The ride with Japan’s fastest elevator was a small attraction on it’s own. And of course the view is just amazing!

The view from the observatory is simply breathtaking. The elevator ride is an experience in itself. Well worth the 1000 yen price. The stuff they sell on the 69th floor is way overpriced though.

I have some proposals including visiting Landmark Tower in Yokohama.
As I mentioned in my profile, I will pick you up at the entrance of your hotel, then bring you to Yokohama by train. After this short trip, you will be able to buy train ticket and chose right train by yourself. This small but sometime difficult "skill" for visitors make you easy to go anywhere you want.
Let me help you enjoy your Japan visiting!
