Let's visit new places in Yokohama!
"Colette Mare" located in front of Sakuragicho Station
Colette Mare is great for those who love fashion. In addition to Colette Mare, the entire building is part of TOC Minato Mirai, a large-scale complex that includes a cinema, hotel, fitness club and offices.
Opened in front of Center-Kita Station "Premier Yokohama"
Particularly noteworthy are "J.PRESS CLUB," which offers a full line of items including men's, women's, and children's wear, as well as pet supplies and miscellaneous goods, and "THE DISH AND CUP," a store with a cafe dining room and coffee stand. Premier Yokohama is also surrounded by the newly developed Northport Mall commercial complex and the Yotsubako shopping center.
"CIAL Sakuragicho", which also has a tourist information center
The area is lined with deli delicatessen stores, including the venerable Chungking Restaurant in Chinatown, making it a facility that locals use on a daily basis.
If you are going sightseeing, the Yokohama Information Plaza is a convenient place to go. There is a counter with the Sakuragicho Tourist Information Center managed by the Yokohama Convention & Visitors Bureau and a checkroom service operated by Yamato Transport Co. (500 yen per day) and same-day delivery to your hotel.
"MARK IS Minatomirai" where you can spend time with nature
It features a large roof called the "Kimorehyo Roof" that lets in plenty of sunlight, and an exterior that blends in with the green trees. There is also an orchard and vegetable garden on the rooftop. There are also many resting spaces, making it a facility where you can not only shop, but also relax and enjoy nature.
New sensation museum "Orbi Yokohama"
The centerpiece of the museum is "Theater 23.4," which features about 13 different "entertaining exhibitions" and one of the largest screens in Japan at 40 meters wide by 8 meters high. The unprecedented level of immersion has become a big topic, and the number of visitors reached 100,000 in just one month after the opening.
"Dockyard Garden" in Yokohama Landmark Tower
In July 2013, a 180-degree projection mapping event was held to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the opening of the museum. Images were projected along with a 29m wide by 10m high ship-shaped stone wall, creating a new visual experience that will make you feel as if you have jumped into another dimension. The projection mapping event lasts about 6 minutes, is held basically every day, and admission is free (as of February 2016).
From shopping and eating to hands-on events, there are many different ways to enjoy Yokohama's new landmarks. Be sure to visit these spots when you're in the neighborhood.
