Picture of the Week Yokohama Marine Tower, Japan

Yokohama Marine Tower (横浜マリンタワー ) is located in the Yamashita koen area of Yokohama, which is known as the traditional sightseeing district of Yokohama.

The lattice tower is 106m high with an observation deck at a height of 100m. The tower offers spectacular views over the harbour. In clear conditions you can see Mount Fuji from the 100m high observation deck.

Entry to Yokohama Marine Tower is 700 yen and it’s open from 10am to 9:30pm.

This is my entry for this week's edition of Show Me Japan

  2. is it true about Mt Fuji? Have you seen it?

  3. Missed this one when we were in the area.

  4. Thanks Ri, It's worth checking out esp for the great views from the observation deck.

    Thanks A & Y, It is true but you will need a very clear day to see it.

    Thanks Lina, Put it top of youir list the next time you are in Yokohama. The Yamashita koen area of Yokohama has a lot to do and see including the Hikawa maru, parks and museums and close by is the world famous Chinatown.
