What to explore at Yokohama Bay Bridge?

As you approach the Tokyo bay, nestled between the Miura peninsula, and the Chiba Peninsula, you can begin to feel the magnitude of the ocean commerce of this area of Japan. Cranes, power plants, large freight boats and more all come together in a complex industrial ecosystem to support the nearby residents of Tokyo, Chiba and Kanagawa, comprising a quarter of the Japanese population or more.

With such a grand and functional port area, there are bound to be equally impressive feats of engineering and architecture, and being on a boat, one of the most noticeable is the bridges that you pass under on the way to the harbor.

A "sea bus" [5] operates between JR Yokohama station (east exit), Minato Mirai and Yamashita Park, and is one of the nicest ways to get around on a sunny day. The fare is ¥340-700 depending on the distance.
