Yokohama Landmark Plaza

If you need some more retail therapy while exploring the city, then the Yokohama Landmark Plaza will have all the shops you could need!
The plaza is located within a 296-metre-high skyscraper and has five separate floors dedicated to some of the most renowned shops and fashion outlets in the world. Once you’re finished browsing the many offerings of the plaza, then the fifth floor has a selection of dining options to replenish.


If you want to really explore the Japanese culture for yourself, then why not have some real Japanese food. Sushi is extremely well renowned in Japan, and Yokohama is no exception, with a wide variety of Sushi restaurants to choose from. The pick of the bunch would be the Yokohama Sky Building. Always packed full of avid food lovers, the restaurant offers the highest standard of fresh sushi for its patrons to enjoy.

Tokyo Solamachi

If you fancy a bit of retail therapy to finish off an exciting day in Tokyo, then the Tokyo Solamachi, which directly translates to ‘Tokyo Sky Town’, is ideal for you.
The complex, which is based at the bottom of the Tokyo Skytree, features over 300 established and original shops and restaurants. Want to try a local delicacy? The complex hosts a huge range of foods and four floors filled with a variety of restaurants.
If you prefer to find a souvenir for a loved one back home, you can do that too! There are plenty of unique and traditional places that offer everything from Japanese salts to crafts and goods.

Arima Onsen

On the other side of Kobe to Mount Rokko, you find the famous hot spring town called Arima Onsen. The town has been modernised but still has roots to its historic past with narrow lanes and wooden buildings and can be explored completely on foot. The town offers multiple types of hot springs to try with different benefits to each, including waters that are said to great for the skin and muscle pains.
What better way to finish off an exciting day exploring than to relax in the bubbling hot springs of Arima Onsen!

Kobe Beef

This is something to really get your teeth into during Rugby World Cup 2019™!
Kobe beef is some of the finest in the world and there is no better way to enjoy this delicacy than at a local teppanyaki restaurant.
If you’d like to take in stunning views of the city while you enjoy your perfectly cooked beef, then the Marcus Square Kobe Teppanyaki Zensou restaurant may be the one for you. The experience is made even greater as the chef will grill the meat on an iron in front of you while you wait for your meal to be prepared.
This is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in wonderful Japanese lifestyle. Yum!
