Yokohama is easily accessible from Tokyo, but there’s enough to see and do here that it’s worth more than a day trip.
Meet at Exit of JR Keihintohoku line Sakuragicho Station, and then travel to Sankeien Japanese-style Garden via public transportation. Use taxi to Yamashita Park. Walk through Redbrick Warehouse, Minatomirai district. The tour will conclude at either Minatomirai or Sakuragicho stations.
Sankeien Japanese-style Garden:
Built by a wealthy businessman about 100 years ago, this vast traditional Japanese-style garden is home to number of great historic importance brought from various parts of Japan such as Kyoto and Kamakura. Many of these are designated as important cultural assets, including a pavilion of Shogun dating back to over 400years ago. Visitors can stroll in the garden, enjoying beautiful harmony that exists between historic buildings and beautiful flowers and trees that change its atmosphere in each season. If you are interested, it would be pleasant to appreciate Japanese–style tea ceremony inside the garden.
Minato Mirai 21 District:
Minato Mirai 21, which literally means the future port of the 21st century, includes the Red Brick Warehouse, various museums, an amusement park, shops and the Landmark Tower. Landmark Tower, measuring some 971ft/296m, houses one of the highest observation decks (Sky Garden) in Japan, which provide us with an amazing views on the 69th floor.
