In 1872, the first gas-powered street lamp appeared in Yokohama, Japan. The lighting up of various historic buildings that evoke the past makes a beautiful contrast with the futuristic views of the Minato Mirai 21 area.

Yokohama offers variety of night views: panoramic view of the starry sky, glimmering light of high-rise buildings, night views alongside the waterfront, factory night view and others. From sunset to midnight, the fickleness of the light and shade keeps visitors entertained.
Yokohama Landmark Tower Sky Garden, located on the 69th floor of the Yokohama Landmark Tower, is lit up colorfully, and it makes you feel as if you are floating in the starry sky, and the big Ferris wheel of Yokohama Cosmo World is illuminated just like fireworks. Rinko Park commands a panoramic view of the Bay Bridge, and Red Brick Warehouse stands out beautifully against the illuminations in the evening. Having a night walk in Zo-no-hana Park (Elephant's trunk park) is also a good idea. In Kishamichi Promenade, you can enjoy watching the surface of the canal reflecting the light from the high-rise buildings and the Ferris wheel. Moreover, Osanbashi Yokohama International Passenger Terminal enables you to enjoy a 360-degree panoramic night view.
