Yokohama Landmark Tower, located in the Minato Mirai district of Yokohama, is the second tallest building in Japan! This impressive 70-floor skyscraper, completed in 1993, stands 296.3 meters tall and is an unmistakable staple in the area’s skyline. The tower is visually intriguing with defined corner posts and a slightly flared base; the building is an engineering feat with a flexible structure that absorbs earthquake shocks. Amazingly, these earthquake building tactics are similar to the ones used to construct traditional Japanese multi-story pagodas.

The Landmark Tower in Yokohama is actually the tallest building in Japan (not the tallest structure though), and I used to work at a company located in this tower a few years back. The views of the building itself and the views from the building, both left a very positive impression on me and I wanted to share some snaps of the tower in this photo story. The area is also ideal for a family trip, as the Cosmo World Amusement Park sits just next to the building and it offers exciting roller coasters and other attractions for kids to enjoy. If you prefer shopping, no problem, visit the Queen's Square with a good selection of well-known brand shops.
