Where I stayed
After looking around there a bit, the three of us decide to go to Osanbashi pier, while Brenda and Chris decide they wanted to go to a hotspring.
Osanbashi pier is the oldest pier in Yokohama, constructed between 1889 and 1896. It was reconstructed a couple of years ago and now one of Japan's major cruise ships is permanently docked there after it's retirement. It's fun to go up the pier and relax in the sunlight, seeing as the pier is pretty high and gives you a nice view of Minato Mirai and the rest of Yokohama. We spent quite some time there, just relaxing in the sunlight, drinking some drinks and watching the view.
We took a look around the area, saw several shops with Hello Kityy dressed up in a Chinese outfit (I swear, that kitty can do EVERYTHING), some hilarious plastic foods. I bought a Starbucks cup from Yokohama (yay!) and we sat down in one of the cafés to have a drink and watch people go by. Eventually it was time for us to meet the others again, so we made our way to Sakuragichou station by following the tracks.
All in all, it was a fabulous day in Yokohama. <3
