Living on Top of a Cloud
This is Yokohama's Landmark Tower, the tallest building in Japan. Staying at the hotel that tops this famous landmark tops the list of thousands upon thousands of visitors who tour the Yokohama Bay area each year.
Although we live only about a 15-minute train ride away from this popular destination, my family and I vacation here each summer, spending one or two days holed up in a local bayside hotel. My family always wants to stay atop Landmark Tower but the rooms (as well as the rates) are just a little too sky-high for me. Besides you could never get this view from above the clouds, you have to be really well grounded to get the big picture.
