The port of the future is the translation of the Japanese name Minato Mirai, the name of this spectacular area in Yokohama. The full name is “Minato Mirai 21 みなとみらい 21”. The skyscrapers and a huge ferris wheel makes it one of the most famous skyline in Japan.
The tallest building is the Yokohama Landmark Tower, with almost 300 meters high and 70 floors. We also found the convention center “Pacifico Yokohama”, the Intercontinental Hotel, and the Yokohama Museum of Art. As a tourist area, there are several amusement parks nearby as well.
The huge and colorful ferris wheel called Cosmo Clock 21. At its center we see a digital clock to know the time. At night it lights up with bright colors that embellish further the Port of the future in Yokohama.
