Most cruise ships in Tokyo dock at Harumi Terminal. Port Yokohama is approx 40 km (25 ml) from the city and is often used as alternative port for Tokyo. The Yokohama Port has served as a gateway to the greater Tokyo area and has welcomed countless cruise ships since its opening in 1859 as Japan’s first modern international trading port. Lying as many as 11 nautical miles closer to the Pacific than the Tokyo Port, it allows cruise ships to save on pilot charges and fuel, and passengers can spend a greater amount of time for sightseeing.
Under construction is the new cruise terminal Shinkyaku Pier, with scheduled completion by 2020 (for the 2020 Olympics).
With the opening of the Tokyo International Cruise Terminal, Tokyo Port will promote the realization of “Tokyo, an international tourist city” that will produce and transmit various attractions.
