Yokohama 'Sea Bass'

A great way to see the city's beautiful bay

Steve Morton   - 1 min read

Having firmly established itself as one of the nation’s major port cities, it should come as no surprise to learn that Yokohama’s ever increasing list of interesting tourist attractions includes a sea bus service known as ‘Sea Bass’

Covering a semi circular route, Sea Bass departs and lands at four major points along the bay including; Yamashita Park, Aka-Renga, Minato-Mirai and the Bay Quarter shopping center, just 5 minutes from Yokohama Station’s East Exit.

Although this is not the fastest way to travel, the cool ocean breezes provide a relaxing escape from the harsh heat and humidity whilst providing some truly spectacular views of the port city
