Yokohama

STATION MAP

Yokohama Station, which links the Toyoko Line with the Minatomirai Line, is one of the largest terminal stations in Japan. This bustling station is also served by the JR lines, Yokohama Municipal Subway, the Keikyu Line, and the Sotetsu Line. In addition, passengers can change there to a bus, a taxi, the Sea Bass (water bus), or the airport limousine bus. Many commercial facilities including famous luxury department stores and popular buildings devoted to fashion-related shops are located at both the East Exit side and West Exit side of the station. These facilities are connected via three pathways running east to west, which are named Kita (north), Chuo (center), and Minami (south). The station also bustles with a large number of people every day as the gateway to the Minatomirai (MM) 21 District, which is also a tourist spot. It is even more crowded on the occasion of the fireworks display held at the port in early August every year and the annual Train Festival held in early October. The station has been relocated twice since it opened, which means that the current location is the third one. Some people call it the “Sagrada Família of Japan” because no construction plan has been completed since it opened.
