平日の
横浜ランドマークタワーの展望台って
人が全然いなくて、
サボって惚けるのに最高っすよ(笑)

晴れた日は、
景色を独り占め♪

ではでは、素敵な週末を☆
Have a wonderful weekend !

Yokohama Landmark Tower

by Mitsubishi Estate Architecture and Engineering Division & Hugh Stubbins and Associates, 1993.

296.3 m high, 73 storeys; second tallest building in Japan (fourth tallest structure).  Elevator transit time 1st-69th floor: 43 seconds.

It turned out to be the perfect weather to visit Japan’s most cyberpunk skyscraper.  Views from the top coming later.
