Yokohama is a major business district and home to a range of international automotive, pharmaceutical, and service industry companies. Yokohama Bay Sheraton Hotel & Towers is centrally located to all the area attractions, offering visitors a wonderful taste of old and new Japanese culture.
The Marine Tower located about 10 minutes by train from Yokohama Bay Sheraton Hotel & Towers, was built in 1958 for the 100th Anniversary monument of Yokohama port opening. Standing at 106 meters the lattice tower has an observatory deck, and provides great views of Yokohama Bay and Mt Fuji. It is also recorded in the Guinness Book of Records as the tallest lighthouse in the world.
Close to Marine Tower is the vibrant and active Yokohama Chinatown. Many Chinese traders settled in the city soon after the port opening. Chinatown’s main attraction is the cuisine offered at its many restaurants and food stands. Most popular are the variety of steamed buns, available in various sizes, offering a quick and inexpensive bite.
The Bay Bridge and Yokohama Bay are local icons, and Yamashita Park is where locals go to enjoy the romantic views. Benches lined up facing the Bay Area offer popular choice for people watching during the day or just watching the boats and ships passing by. This is also within 10 minutes by train from Yokohama Bay Sheraton Hotel & Towers.
Nearby Yamashita Park are the Red Bricks, a historic warehouse complex that originally served as a customs building. The complex now houses a shopping mall, banquet hall, event and conference space, and an array of trendy restaurants and food stores.
