Things that are proud to be big tend to like to remind you how big they are. Luckily, you can experience Yokohama’s pride up close with a visit up Landmark Tower. On the 69th floor, you’ll find yourself on the Sky Garden observation deck with 360-degree views of the city and port. Hope you’re not afraid of heights. Once your stomach has calmed down, make a beeline to the Ramen Museum. Don’t worry, this isn’t some strange centre filled with university-era dried out noodles. Instead, this museum offers a smorgasbord of ramen flavours from across Japan. Yes, slurping is allowed. And for an extra pop of activity during your trip, check out the Nippon Maru and the Hikawa Maru, two ships from the 1920s and 1930s that have been revamped and opened to the public. They’re also close to downtown and a ton of Yokomama accommodation options.
Get to Yokohama through the Narita International Airport (NRT) in Tokyo. From there, take your pick of high-speed rails that will bring you to the Yokohama Station in the heart of town. Fun fact: the Yokohama centre is the fifth-busiest train station in the world and warmly greets roughly 760 million passengers a year.
