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 Landmark Tower gives you the Yokohama City feel at 273 meters sky view. great place for shopping, eating and sight seeing and the Yokohama Royal Park Hotel. It has a variety of restaurants and remarkable shopping stores. The observatory deck that gives a 360 degree birds eye view of Yokohama City makes it an interesting experience. The elevator moves at a really fast speed, (the fasted in the world currently) but you can hardly tell when you are inside. The Landmark tower is a place to visit when you come to Japan.

Good lord, I was there about 3 hours and I barely scratched the surface of what was there. So many great stores and tons of great restaurants to try. I really need about 10 more trips there to give it a fair rating but so far, it deserves 5 stars.

Lots of great shops in the shopping mall. Many times I bough a present here for my darling - a bag, a purse, Swarovski jewelry, and even engagement and wedding rings! In the center of this shopping mall they quite often make seasonal installations, and organize some performance. I always enjoyed it as a little unexpected surprise. We visit this place every time we go to Japan. And of course, the city view from the top of the building is awesome! I recommend the evening view to see all the light of the city, but if you are lucky to get there on a sunny day with very clear sky, you have all the chance to see a beautiful Fuji mountain. But please don't fall in love with this place like I did... it makes me want to return here way too often. :)

This is the tallest building situated nearest to Tokyo Bay, and located within is lots of restaurants, shops sufficient to keep visitors busy for one day.
The entrance to the observation deck is from outside the 3rd floor, purchase a ticket (1000 yen for adults) and you will be ushered to the lift to go to the deck. There are desserts shop with seats to enjoy desserts and scenery from 69th floor of the building. The view is majestic!

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!
