Yokohama: Partly cloudy 23c. Slight wind in in the bay. The Osanbachi terminal had free wifi, and Celebirty provided a free shuttle to JR Sakuragicho station. We walked along the waterfront, Sail Training ship, Cosmo World, Red Brick warehouse, World Porter shopping and back through Nihon-Odori station to buy PASMO cards. Back to the ship for lunch, and out again walking to Yamashita Park, Motomashi shopping street, Doll museum and Chinatown. By then it was hot and humid so we returned to the ship for afternoon cocktails. Since the ship stayed in port overnight, we returned to Chinatown after the show and met the rugby fans celebrating New Zealand win over South Africa. Tokyo – we got off the ship at 9am, walked 12 minutes to Nihon-Odori station and boarded to train to Tokyo which took almost one hour. We stayed 3 nights at the Nippon Seinenkan hotel and took three Tokyo Localized walking tours in Meiji-Jingu shrine and Shinjuku. We also visited the observation deck at the Municipal Government building at dusk. There was a 30 minute lineup for elevator. Next day we visited the Royal palace gardens for guided walk (very large group), then it started raining. At 7:30pm we walked to Shibuya, crossing the Scramble and returned to our hotel on the Ginza Line. Next day we took the Access Narita to the airport from Ginza station Read Less

Yokohama is an attractive and accessible port with easy access to the train station and buses. It was also our embarkation port and we found it to be very efficient. We caught the number 8 bus, which goes to the Sankekin garden. It is a 15 minute ride and costs 220 Yen. Entry to the garden was 700 Yen, which seemed very reasonable. Within the garden you can participate in a tea ceremony, which was a new experience for us (cost 500 Yen). The gardens are laid out with an inner and outer garden. They cover quite a large area and are landscaped with many ponds and bridges. The buildings mainly date back to 1919. China Town is a 15 minute walk from the ship and well worth a visit. An interesting place to visit around lunch time when they are busy making dim sum. We tried their cha sui pork but it was very disappointing, having too much veg and not enough pork. We did not have time to go on the big wheel as it was quite a long walk from where we were docked. However, the gardens along the port are well kept and we passed the tall tower. Read Less

On my port day in Yokohama, I visited Sankeien Garden. It takes about 20-25 mins to get there on the No. 8 bus a few blocks from the port. The Tourist Info in the Cruise Terminal are wonderful. They have maps, leaflets, costs, things written down in Japanese etc. The port is very close to some attractions so you can get of the ship and just walk around. Cruise terminal has free wifi. On the final day after transferring to Narita, I took the train (Keisei Line, 480yen return, 3 trains an hour, 1 stop from terminal 2) and wandered along a delightful old shopping street to Narita-San Temple which has quite a large collection of buildings and nice gardens. Its also wheelchair accessible so after climbing all those steps, I came back down using various lifts and ramps. I'm so glad I did this as I'd felt robbed of time onshore during the cruise.

We love Tokyo! It is about a 50 minute train ride to downtown from the port. Yokohama is a nice city to walk in. You can literally walk right out of the port into the city.

We flew into Tokyo early and toured on our own. We stayed at the Hotel New Grand in Yokohama which I would highly recommend. It's very close to where the ship docks.
