The Port of Yokohama was opened in 1859 as Japan's first modern international trade port and has now become the No.1 cruise port in Japan.
The port, conveniently located within Tokyo Bay and surrounded by a rich assortment of tourist attractions, both modern and cultural, plays a vital role as the gateway port for metropolitan Tokyo as well as Eastern and Northern Japan.
(The Port of Yokohama conveniently lies 11 sea miles closer to the Pacific Ocean than the Port of Tokyo.)
With the completion of our state-of-the-art International Passenger Terminal in 2002, which also has easy access to expressways and airports, we are now committed to welcoming and capable of accommodating almost all cruise ships.
And we can meet their demands efficiently and warmheartedly.
This unique and innovative terminal is able to meet the needs of the cruise industry in the 21st century while at the same time drawing the citizenry and the port closer together. It is a proud heritage for future generations, as well as a highly efficient and functional facility for visiting cruise ships.
The hospitable services we provide through it, such as our welcome and farewell ceremonies that are versatile and flexible, are second to none in Japan.
