Introduction, Recommendations and Barrier Free Functions
In 1854, the history of Yokohama port began at the beach where the group of 500 people led by Perry, who landed in order to sign the Convention of Kanagawa. Two jetties were constructed on the beach when the port opened in 1859, and the prototypes still remain as the ‘Elephant’s Nose’ at the root of the Osanbashi Pier.
It boasts to be one of the longest piers in the word and even luxury liners can moor on both sides of berths. The current Osanbashi International Terminal was rebuilt in 2002. It’s turned into a unique pier that has innovative concepts compatible with cruises of the 21st century, and the appearance like a natural island.
It’s a considerate port to visitors, like a garden, with the second floor of the terminal building and the floor of the rooftop made of wood, and the rooftop having natural turf. There’s no staircase in the terminal, and you can go upstairs and downstairs with the ramps and elevators.
You can move around in your wheelchairs in the rooftop park ‘Kujira no Senaka’ or, ‘The Back of a Whale’ on the third floor. From the immigration lobby on the second floor, tactile paving will lead you to the entrance to the ferry.
There are separate accessible toilets for male and female in the lobby, equipped with a baby seat.
