Recommended Christmas date spots in Yokohama

With beautiful night views at any time of the year, the Christmas season in Yokohama is the perfect time to enjoy the illuminations. Let's take a look at a few spots that you especially shouldn't miss.

Minato Mirai area

Yokohama Landmark Tower is one of the most popular spots in the Minato Mirai area. In addition to the illumination of the trees and the huge tree in the building, there are also some events unique to Christmas.

Of course, the night view from the observation deck of the Landmark, or from the restaurants and bars in and around the building, is another thing to look forward to. The lights on the Ferris wheel at Yokohama Cosmo World will be changed to Christmas specifications, and the Christmas tree will also appear at Queen's Square Yokohama. 

Another popular activity is dinner cruising in Yokohama harbor on a large ship from the Minato Mirai area. In addition, the Christmas Market is held at the Red Brick Warehouse, where the streets are lined with illuminated fir trees and the market is filled with German-style wine and sausages.
