How to get to Marine Rouge?
3-minute walk from Motomachi-Chukagai Station
About 15 min. walk from JR Kannai Station
We went on the so-called "Cruise Bar Garden" cruise on the Marine Rouge vessel for a cruise in Yokohama Bay. The cruise started at 16:15 h from Minatomirai Pier and lasted 90 minutes. It was the Friday before a Bank Holiday weekend, and although we had expected a large number of people, we were surprised to be almost the only passengers, except for one couple. So it felt very intimate - almost like a private cruise, with the crew having plenty of time to chat with us and taking our pictures, both downstairs in the dining area, as well as on the deck. The personal attention started from the moment we boarded the boat, as we were called by our name upon being welcomed. This was followed by a glass of bubbly, which is included in the price for the cruise. It may not feel as cosy when the ship is full of passengers, but certainly the spectacular view of the Yokohama skyline and Yokohama Bay Bridge will always be the same. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would do it again anytime!
