After finishing a very satisfying dinner, we went for a nice stroll along the harbour-side through to Minato Mirai 21... a large reclaimed land development that juts out of Yokohama Bay. Hmm - looking at these photos it looks like welcoming... and it was a fun (if long) walk. However... it was BLOODY FREEZING.
But if that was a little too slow paced for you - there's always Yokohama's Cosmoworld. It's a fairly small enterainment park, but the views must be great. In one of those sad moments however... as we arrived they had just started playing the haunting (and somewhat annoying) strains of Auld Lang Syne... don't ask me why, but this music is synonymous with closing time. *sigh*.... then again... I'm not that good with heights anyhow.
Yokohama's skyline is certainly impressive at night, but around Minato Mirai 21, the impressive views start below the ground floor!
10... 9... 8... 7... 6... 5... 4... 3... 2... 1... Lift-off for Rocket-ship Yokohama! At least it's a distinctively coloured tower, even though it might not be as structurally impressive as Tokyo Tower....
