Syamsid Journey : From Malaysia To Japan : Episode 8 ( Yokohama - Minato Mirai - Renga WareHouse )



Hello folks , now we back on track of continuations of japan journey episode 8 . There's a lot , I want to shared my journey in my blog but first , Happy new year ! Can you believe that , we already've entered the year of 2016. Yahoo . Haha  So this is my first post of this year , I hope you guys enjoy my previous post because I'm gonna give my best update experienced to shared in my blog that you guys might be like it , but first here’s yokohama according to Mr Wiki



mr. wiki : Yokohama (横浜市 Yokohama-shi?) is the capital city of Kanagawa Prefecture and the second largest city in Japan by population after Tokyo and most populous municipality of Japan. It lies on Tokyo Bay, south of Tokyo, in the Kantō region of the main island of Honshu. It is a major commercial hub of the Greater Tokyo Area. Yokohama’s population of 3.7 million makes it Japan’s largest incorporated city. Yokohama had been the world’s largest suburb until the formation of New Taipei (excluding Mainland China as cities there are nonstandard[citation needed]. Yokohama developed rapidly as Japan’s prominent port city following the end of Japan’s relative isolation in the mid-19th century, and is today one of its major ports along with Kobe, Osaka, Nagoya, Hakata, Tokyo, and Chiba.



i love ferris wheels. i love the designs and when at night, it would be a spectacle to watch it. this one located in minato mirai area is a famed one. i have always loved this one and will still love it forever more minato mirai area is full of fun stuff including parks, amusement parks, shopping arcades and not forgetting the beautiful ferris wheel



and we have arrived at the base of yokohama’s landmark tower. this art structure looks like the roller coaster’s track.. haha. wanna know more about this tower? mr. wiki will tell you : The Yokohama Landmark Tower (横浜ランドマークタワー Yokohama Randomāku Tawā?) is the tallest building[1] and 3rd tallest structure in Japan, standing 296.3 m (972 ft) high. It is located in the Minato Mirai 21 district of Yokohama city, right next to Yokohama Museum of Art. Work on the building was finished in 1993. When opened, it had the highest observation deck in Japan. The building contains a five-star hotel which occupies floors 49-70, with 603 rooms in total.[1] The lower 48 floors contain shops, restaurants, clinics, and offices. The building contains two tuned mass dampers on the (hidden) 71st floor on opposite corners of the building. On the 69th floor there is an observatory, Sky Garden, from which one can see a 360-degree view of the city, and on clear days Mount Fuji. The tower contains the world’s 2nd fastest elevators, originally world’s fastest, which reach speeds of 12.5 m/s (41 ft/s)[1] (45.0 km/h (28.0 mph)). This speed allows the elevator to reach the 69th floor in approximately 40 seconds. The elevators’s speed record was surpassed by elevators of Taipei 101 (60.6 km/h, 37.7 mi/h) in 2004.



the weather was not fine that day. spending your yen to the observation tower would be a waste. but on a more glorious weather day, you are welcomed to see the beauty of tokyo under the sun and blue sky ^^



the folks zig-zagging making way to their destinations.



ain’t the cascading stairs at each side of this area looks cool? let me tell you something, this is the former dockyard that is now used mainly as a concert venue.



the sidewalk with autumn leaves scattering the grounds.



the yokohama landmark tower seen from the other side.



another lookie of my favorite ferris wheel ^^



this sailing ship is called nippon maru. you can search the details in internet. i didn’t get into the ship by the way ^^



just opposite nippon maru docking area is this place where you can sip hot coffee during the cold near-the-end-of-autumn day…



beautiful yellows… ehmmm.. not so beautiful pair of shoes ^^



taking a walk around the area. there are open fields where families with small child picnicking.. happy times..



at first we wanted to walk exploring the parks but then we cancelled it.. hahaha..



the whole port side yokohama area.



i insisted my friends to walk to the aka renga warehouse.. after being intimidated (haha), they agreed to walk there..



the amusement park.. with the ferris wheel standing majestically..



we can take the inside route but i opted for seaside route. here’s what you’ll see..



minato mirai area also holds fireworks display every year. a shame that i could not see it during my visit to japan..



and.. after a while, we have arrived at the aka renga warehouse. folks hanging out fishing hoping for a good catch. the rainbow bridge in the distance



aka renga warehouse (Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse). two rows of red-brick warehouse that is also a soothing place to have a walk and dates ^^. these two warehouses is no longer serving it’s old purpose as the port’s warehouse but they both serves as main tourist attraction in yokohama.



the warehouses will look nicer when illuminated by lights at night..



the aka renga warehouse couple..



there happened to be a porsche’s owners gathering there. on the end of the building (the red tent) was the place where models posing for pictures. some of them even dance! cute. but i didn’t capture many of the pics since my friends got me covered by taking the models pictures hysterically. and not forgetting a small concert also being held up.. (this one further back there – can’t be seen in this picture)



multi millions gathering. folks taking the opportunity to snap their pics with these expensive road monsters..



any particular porsche model to your liking? the older model looks cool by the way..



This is when my friends left me alone and they all went to the sexy models taking pics hahaha. i looked back and took this picture. the rainbow bridge can still be seen.



Oh noessss..!! that guy spotted me taking his picture. well i don’t care since the other hundreds didn’t mind at all ^^



it started raining at this time and we hurried back running a few good kilometers back to the parking lot



while running in the rain i took this picture. you can’t see the rain in this pic because the rain drops were very very small and fine.. nonetheless it got me kinda wet ><



got back into the car and we roared back onto the road in rain. we drove through the same road yesterday and i snapped this picture. hey hey… i get to see you again.. ^^. well, it’s the end of this entry people. until next time. byeeeeee…

    1. Hurm . I would like to say , "berpatutan" haha . Well I will give you a tips . If you go with any travel agencies of course they'll be quite expensive , If you're not using agents , that will be a lot cheaper but you need to use public transport or rented a car better go with your friends or family :)
