Minato Mirai, a district facing the Port of Yokohama. This area is full of quintessential Yokohama spots, such as the Yokohama Landmark Tower, the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, the ferris wheel and the hotel shaped like a sail. The spot from which this magnificent panorama can be seen in its spectacular entirety is the Daikoku Ohashi. The view west from the middle of this bridge, which links the Tsurumi area to Daikoku Pier, takes in the whole of Minato Mirai. Evening is truly a magical hour, when the sea is stained red and even distant Mt. Fuji can be seen.

※ Views like the one shown in the photo can only be seen under certain conditions (time of day, weather etc.).
Although the bridge is used by vehicles, there is a pedestrian walkway to enable viewing in safety. The nearest stations are Tsurumi-Ono Station on the JR Tsurumi Line or Namamugi Station on the Keikyu Main Line. There is a bus from in front of Namamugi Station to just in front of Daikoku Ohashi, but enjoying the scenery while going there on foot is also to be highly recommended. Beyond the bridge is Yokohama Bay Bridge, which can be seen lit up at night.
