Over 55,000 visitors showed at Yokohama’s newly opened Shinko Pier terminal to welcome Diamond Princess on November 4, as the Princess Cruises’ vessel became the first cruise ship to berth.

The berth is 340mtr and 9.5mtr depth for accommodating cruise ships up to 110,000gt and it is the first cruise terminal in Japan to include a commercial area and a hotel.

Hotel and shops

The five storey building, located close to the city, features 25 shops including Japan Ramen Food Hall with six ramen shops, sweets factories and restaurants with panoramic views. The Intercontinental Yokohama Pier 8 hotel spans the third to fifth floors.

Named the Yokohama Hammerhead Project after the port’s old quay crane installed at Shinko Pier in 1914, the crane is undergoing restoration and will stand in a park near the terminal next spring.

In the evening around 5,000 people gathered on the quayside waving yellow flags and hankies to bid goodbye to Diamond Princess.
