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.

Love this place, luckily it was a sunny bright day in February and we were able to see snow capped Mt. Fuji! It was amazing! Other buildings and views up to Tokyo were also great! Took 40 seconds to go up the 59th floor, where the Sky Garden is, the entrance was on the 3rd floor. Plus, the souvenir shop had reasonable prices, got a bottle of Yokohama cider, caramel lollies and Yokohama curry sauce, all for under 900 yen, I was surprised!

We love to visit this area every time we visit Yokohama. There are so many shops and restaurants around here that you will have a hard trying to decide which ones to try out. Plus there is also some type of entertainment so make sure you grab a snack and drink before you enjoy the show.

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.

So... I have been visiting quite a few tall and taller buildings around the world but... Yokohama Landmark Tower has stunned me with how cleaned the viewing windows were. Absolutely stunning!!!! I had the impression that there were no windows at all. If there are other reasons to go up the Landmark Tower, the clear views should definitely make you pay the entrance ticket and enjoy it. One of the photos I'm attaching is a composite image made out of a couple photos combined using dedicated software.

Nice panoramic view, and it only costs ¥1000. Be sure to take advantage of the time there as they serve food and drinks. You also need to remember to reserve seats if you want to go there for a date.

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!
