Yokohama's Centerpiece Apr 21, 2015
If your visiting Yokohama then a trip up the Landmark tower is one of the things you have to do.

On the 69th floor there is an observation deck that has beautiful 360 degree views of Yokohama. From here you really can see how clean and unspoiled Yokohama is. To get to the 69th floor you take one of the fastest elevators in the world, reaching the 69th floor in 40 seconds.

The tower was also once the tallest building in Japan at just under 1000 feet high.

The tower also has a five star hotel inside, so the views from your hotel room will be awesome.

Not only is there an observation deck on the 69th floor but there is also a caricature store where you can get your portrait drawn in less than 15 minutes (which I did).

I'd highly recommend visiting the tower, enjoying the stunning views and getting your portrait drawn as a fun memento.

A Great way to view Yokohama Feb 09, 2007
Landmark Tower is the best place to visit when you in Yokohama. It's the tallest and fastest building in Japan. Not only do you get to see a great view of yokohama at night from the 69th floor, you also get a chance to see one of the best looking buildings that thats tons of shopping centers. One a clear day you can see Mt. Fuji from this building and also you can see Yokohama Bay bridge. The cost to get to the top is only 1,000 yen which is about 9 dollars per person. Once inside the elevator you will race up to the 69th floor in about 40 seconds. The max speed is about 750 meters per seconds. Once there you will get a complete 360 degree of yokohama. There's food and entertainment once you arrive at the sky garden. If you go at night it can enjoy a nice relaxing time sitting in the comfortable chairs over looking the view. Once you get off the elevator to the left they have on the floor a projection of the traffic below very cool especially at night. The great thing about the Landmark building is after you wonderful view of yokohama you can choose many of the great restaurant or you can leave the building and across the way is Hard Rock Cafe.
