Baysidemarina

Last updated date:2019/2/27

"The Yokohama Bayside Marina District" aims to be a popular spot where people can visit and enjoy recreational water sports while getting in touch with nature. The purpose of this district is also to ensure an appropriate space for pleasure boats moored in the rivers or canals.
This is going to be one of Japan's largest marinas capable of presently mooring approximately 1,500 boats (eventually maximizing its capacity to about 2,000). Various facilities and functions including marine-related facilities, restaurants and other commercial attractions are being mapped out. The construction of green areas and a promenade is also under way along the shoreline.
The expertise of private companies is being used to achieve the best result for the public. Land is being reclaimed for business use and infrastructures such as roads and green areas are being developed by the city. Construction and management of marina facilities are conducted by the third sector, "Yokohama Bayside Marina, Corp." which is invested in by the City of Yokohama and marine-related companies. The adjacent marine facility area is being developed by private companies.

Creating a Base for Marine Recreations

The water area of the now-defunct Kanazawa Timber Pier was found to be well suited for a marina. It has thus been reclaimed and is now used with other marine-related facilities. This water-front area of Kanazawa Ward was chosen because of its attractive location with easy access to both Yokohama Hakkeijima Island, which boasts various leisure facilities, and Uminokoen Marine Park with its long and wide beach.
