Yokohama Air Cabin has state-of-the-art cable cars offering panoramic views of Yokohama’s futuristic Minato Mirai district. The 630-meter-long circuit connects JR Sakuragicho Station and Unga Park, where you will find the Cupnoodles Museum, Yokohama Cosmo World theme park, shopping malls, restaurants, and historic red-brick warehouses that are now a vibrant center of local culture and community.
Hop on board for 360-degree panoramic views of one of Japan’s biggest cities, from a height of 40 meters, in an advanced urban circulation system railway—the first cable car to be installed in an urban area in Japan.
The ropeway was manufactured by amusement park facility experts SENYO to be safe, comfortable, and enjoyable for everyone. Every gondola is barrier-free and equipped with high-tech functions, combining SENYO’s unique know-how and technology across a wide range of fields, including ventilation via natural circulation of air, air cooling systems with the latest battery solutions, safety monitoring systems, and lighting performance using full-color LEDs.
Take a ride after dark to enjoy the nighttime view, including the spectacular lighting plan on the station building and cabins designed by world-renowned lighting designer Motoko Ishii. Ishii has been internationally active since the 1960s, with past projects including light installations for Tokyo Tower, Tokyo’s Rainbow Bridge, Himeji Castle, the Roman Colosseum, and more.
