Yokohama City, Japan

Landmark Tower, tallest building in Japan


Cosmo World Ferris Wheel


Roller Coaster Display between Land Mark Tower and Queen's Square Mall


Snoopy Town



Pokemon Center



Disney Store


-----------------------------------------------------

Yokohama is the second largest city of Japan. It's about 40 minute trip from New Sanno Hotel (where we stayed during our trip in Tokyo) by train plus walk is almost an hour trip then ;-)

We had a short time walking around Landmark Tower and Queens Square and didn't have the chance to go to observation deck and other nice places nearby. My daughter had enjoyed the mall when we found out that they have sanrio, pokemon center, disney store and snoopy town. IAnd we didn't even go to the ferris wheel since we already tried the Odaiba one ;-P

By the way, the Cosmo World Clock (which can be seen on the ferris wheel itself) is the world's largest clock (wow!).
When Cosmo World first opened in 1989, it was the world's tallest Ferris wheel.
The current record holder of the largest ferris wheel is the 165-meter (541 ft) Singapore Flyer, which opened to the public in March 2008, which by the way I saw that too last year when we went to Singapore.

WOW! That's a really tall ferris wheel. I probably would get dizzy once I'm at the peak. Woooo!

Mari thanks for dropping by, the ferris wheel is so slow you won't even feel it's moving unlike the small ones ;-)
