Osanbashi Pier, which juts out into the sea next to Yamashita Park, is also a passenger ship terminal. From here, passenger ships leave for Japan and other countries. When a cruise ship arrives at a port of call, a large number of people and their luggage board and disembark here. Osanbashi is a window to Yokohama, and yet it is located in a rather inconvenient place.
There is no train station adjacent to the terminal and it is a short walk from both Kannai Station and Nihon-Odori Station, the nearest stations. It is a bit inconvenient for many people who come to the rooftop plaza even if they do not board a cruise ship, and it is somewhat like an airport in a developing country.
In many developing countries, the transportation infrastructure to the airport is not well developed, and there are no railroads connecting the airport to the city. On the other hand, when you can take a train to the city without leaving the airport facilities, such as at Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia or Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok, Thailand, you feel that this place is developed.
I wrote about this in detail, but the point is that there is no train station near the Osanbashi Passenger Boat Terminal, so the easiest way to get to Yokohama City after disembarking from the ship here is by cab. This is especially true if you are carrying a piece of large baggage. At this time, a cab was parked at the spacious cab stand, waiting for passengers to arrive.
