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 place is very beautiful. You can go up and see the beautiful view of Cosmo Clock, Fuji San and sea. The evening feels too beautiful when you see the light twinkling down. The Landmark Tower area is very happening to have a walk around. Also, it offers a great variety of food and entertainment around! The place is must visit!

A symbolic building of Yokohama. For a long time this was the highest building in Japan but now it’s the second. However no one, at least people around me, care and we still love this landmark. If you are a tourist, or if you are looking for somewhere romantic, climbing up the observation is highly recommend especially after dark.

The best shopping place.
Yokohama is wider than more pleasant than other cities in Japan.
I even think that Yokohama is not Japan.
Tall buildings, skyline, huge shopping malls and streets.
Tokyo Ginza street is also good for shopping but Yokohama Landmark is cheaper and better cause there are not crowded.

Unbeatable view (except for maybe the pagoda by Mt. Fuji), delicious comfort food, tasty drinks, and a peaceful ambiance made this experience delightful. I would recommend coming at sunset for the most spectacular display of colors in the sky. The jazz playing in the background was a nice touch as well. Worth every yen.

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 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!
