  Yamashita park     

Most famous and historical park in Yokohama. A popular date spot for young couples. 1 km far from Yokohama Marine Tower (wheelchair accessible) to Osanbashi Pier (wheelchair accessible). NYK Marine Museum is also wheelchair accessible. But wheelchair users find it hard to enter Ship Hikawa Maru because this ship has no lift. This ship is cultural heritage, so it cannot be remodeled to install a lift inside.

  Ramen museum

Located near Shin-Yokohama Sta. Visitors take stairs in the museum, but there is a lift on back door. When wheelchair users take the lift, a staff member will accompany them down to Ramen shops in the basement. We can enjoy many kinds of Ramen (noodles) from all over Japan. Ramen restaurants do not have enough space for electric wheelchairs. We can feel the atmosphere of the Taisho and Showa period (the mid-20th century of Japan).
