The Landmark Tower is part of the "Minato Mirai 21" - or "future port". Others buildings include the Pacifico Yokohama Convention Center, Grand InterContinental Hotel and the Yokohama Cosmo World Amusement Park (including one of Japan's biggest Ferris Wheels).

Walking along the harbour promenade from Minato Mirai, you'll get to the pleasant Yamashita Park (above) and its 106m Marine Tower.

A short walk inland from Yamashita Park is China Town ('chukagai'), the largest of its kind in Japan. It usually squirms with tourists who have come to taste the Chinese delicacies, buy traditional Chinese art or view the colourful and intricately decorated Chinese temples and gates.

To the south of China Town is the classy Motomachi shopping district. In the hills behind, the quiet residential area of Yamate was were most Westerners settled after Yokohama port opened to foreign business people in 1859. It keeps a few European-style houses, an Italian park and a Foreigner's Cemetry in Motomachi Park.
