Yokohama Landmark Tower, Yokohama

#10 of 714 in Things to do in Yokohama
Architectural Building · Hidden Gem · Landmark
Take the lightning-fast elevator up Yokohama Landmark Tower, one of Japan's tallest buildings. You'll ascend at a speed of 12.5 m/s (41 ft/s) to the 69th floor of this 296.3 m (972 ft) high-rise. From there, access the observatory, which enables a 360-degree view of the city and--on a clear day--Mount Fuji. The vast architectural marvel also contains a five-star hotel, shops, restaurants, clinics, and offices. Bear in mind that seismic activity occurs regularly in Japan, but don't worry, since the building contains two tuned mass dampers to counter the quakes. A visit to Yokohama Landmark Tower represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Yokohama road trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • From the ground, looking at the Landmark Tower, one realizes how incredibly enormous the building is. It is not the height, but mainly the width; and the combination of both. Especially at night...  more »
  • This whole area is great for walking and relaxing. On a hot August day it is a comfortable spend the time.  more »
  • The mall is huge and multi-level. They have a 5 star hotel here but we only got to visit the 360 degree viewing deck. The elevator, one of the fastest in the world was a short but nice experience! We get to buy some souvenirs and the staff are all friendly. Trip to Japan should always include this place and the city of Yokohama. Great people, lots of fun things to do and great food!
  • Wonderful views. You can even see Mount Fuji if the weather is good. The only problem is that you cannot pay for the entrance with a card, only cash is accepted. A very fast elevator
