Cruises

Yokohama Port is a destination for large luxury cruise ships, such as the "Diamond Princess" and "Queen Elizabeth," that visit year-round from both domestic and international locations. The Asuka II, which calls Yokohama its home port, also departs from here to sail the world. As it is said, "The best way to view a port town is from the sea," you can experience the essence of Yokohama by observing it from a ship. While enjoying the sea breeze and the Yokohama landscape, why not indulge in a little luxury by enjoying a delightful meal during the cruise?

The "Marine Rouge" is a restaurant ship that offers a wide range of plans, including a lunch cruise basking in the sunlight, a sunset cruise with a picturesque evening sky, and a dinner cruise that pairs perfectly with Yokohama's night view and wine. From the prime seats on the ocean, you can savor meticulously prepared French cuisine that will surely please your taste buds.

Jingaoka Valley Park

"Jingashita Valley Park" is a hidden gem located a 15-minute walk from Kamishinagawa Station, just a 10-minute train ride from Yokohama Station. Taking advantage of its location surrounded by water, this hiking spot allows you to enjoy the soothing negative ions from the lush green trees while listening to the sounds of water and birds. Developed as a park in 2004, it boasts a site area of approximately 2.8 hectares (about 6.9 acres). The shallow river with a water depth up to the ankles, offers a relatively safe environment for water play. You can also enjoy activities like discovering crabs and observing aquatic creatures (note that there are restricted areas to preserve fireflies). Along the way, there are open spaces with benches and tables where you can relax amidst the forest.

Not only the surroundings of the river but also the park itself, with tall trees creating natural shade, will help you forget about the summer heat and provide a refreshing atmosphere.
