Watching the city change while the sun goes down is an interesting thing to see. Everything goes from light to dark, while all the lights turn on. I was in the Sky Garden at Landmark Tower when the sun was setting, and this was a great opportunity for some pictures. Enjoy the photos!
Looking toward Queen's Square and the Grand Intercontinental Hotel at Minatomirai.
Here's Cosmo World with the big ferris wheel and Aka-Renga area.
There are plenty of new condo buildings here, as well as Pacifico Yokohama and Rinko Park.
This is looking toward Yokohama Station.
Looking west over Yokohama, toward Minami Ward.
Down there is Sakuragicho Station and the new TOC Minatomirai building. It's starting to get darker out.
Here's the harbour area. More lights are coming on.
Looking south toward the Kannai area.
This big blue tunnel of lights was part of a lovers event in Landmark Tower.
Now that the sun has set, we revisit the Yokohama Station view.
And finally, the same view as the first picture. I like both day and night views.

These escalators do actually go somewhere, but this is something you’ll see everywhere right now. Due to the power shortage, most escalators are turned off to help conserve energy and prevent blackouts. It may be a bit inconvenient for some, but it gives people more exercise.
Earlier this week, I ate at American House restaurant in the new TOC Minato Mirai building by Sakuragicho station. This is the view from the restaurant.
This building is one of the newest buildings in the Minato Mirai area, TOC Minato Mirai. It’s next to Sakuragicho station, and was completed this year. It has a shopping centre, restaurants, hotel and a 13 screen movie theatre.
This is TOC Minato Mirai, or Colette-Mare, a new building in Minato Mirai.
From Sakuragicho Station to Landmark Tower, there’s a long moving walkway to make your walk easier. This picture was taken from the end nearest the station.
That's a long moving walkway at Sakuragicho.
This is the Nipponmaru, which was used as a training ship in the past. It’s now part of a maritime museum near Sakuragicho Station and Landmark Tower.

I took these 2 pictures yesterday in Sakuragicho. Spring is definitely here! The cherry trees are blooming, but not fully yet. It should get warmer now.
Trees along the street in front of Landmark Tower.
