About the Cosmo Clock 21 Ferris Wheel
The Cosmo Clock 21 Ferris Wheel is the world’s largest clock-style ferris wheel, located inside of Yokohama Cosmo World. It stands as the landmark of the Minato Mirai 21 district at a total height of 112.5m, diameter of 100m, and 60 gondolas that each seat 8 people for a total capacity of 480 people.
The gondolas have "see through cabin" model with transparent walls and floor. The ferris wheel takes 15 minutes to go one lap, upon which you will get to see the beautiful scenery of Yokohama at a leisurely pace. The interiors of the gondolas are equipped with a tablet "Ferris Wheel Navigation" on which you can see commentary about the scenery you can see from the gondola, including Yokohama’s history. From sunset until 24:00 you can enjoy the illumination which is as beautiful as the fireworks, and you can take photos around this area of the night view.
