Opened in 1962 at the former site of the British soldiers’ barracks. The lookout and benches facing the ocean offer a full view of Yokohama port. A perfect place for viewing the Yokohama Bay Bridge at night. The forest on the north side was formerly a French military garrison, and is now called the French Mountain area. The land was handed over to Yokohama City in 1971. The same arch as in the central market of Paris stands in front. Also includes the British House, the Yamate 111 Ban-Kan, the Osaragi Jiro Memorial Hall and the Kanagawa Museum of Modern Literature. Also famous for the roses that are in full bloom in the spring and autumn seasons.
From the observatory, you can enjoy the night view of Yokohama Bay Bridge, Marine Tower, and Honmoku Pier. Bench seating makes it an ideal meeting place.
The Yokohama Bay Bridge is lit blue from 40 meters to the top of the main tower for 10 minutes every 20 to 30 minutes and every 50 minutes until midnight.
