A couple of weeks ago while in Yokohama I took these photos of the fantastically colored sky and the city. It was a once-in-a-decade sort of sky, very cool. I also visited the international pier at Minato Mirai, the Osanbashi. Easily one of the most interesting landmarks of Yokohama, and one of the rare examples of perfect modern architecture. A must visit!
Visiting Yokohama with friends last week I just had to take a detour to one of my favorite Yokohama landmarks, the Osanbashi and the International ship terminal there. Sort of blocking our view though, was the biggest ship I have ever seen, the simply gigantic Costa Victoria. The name might ring a bell if you remember the more unfortunate Costa Concorida that capsized of the coast of Italy earlier this year. The Costa Victoria really towered above the usually quite huge Osanbashi, even though we missed out on the view of Yokohama Minato Mirai, we were impressed by the ship instead. Funny thing was, on the other side of the pier, another huge ship was resting at anchor, but I forgot her name (last photo of the blog post). I wonder if anyone on these ship reads this blog?
