      Kanagawa Prefectural Government is promoting “Campaign 3033”, which aims to encourage citizens to do exercise or sports for 30 minutes a day, three times a week, for three months, so that exercise will be a daily routine.  As part of its promotion, we will hold an event to climb the stairs of Yokohama Landmark Tower.  The participants will go up the emergency stairs, which are usually not in use, to the 69th floor where “Sky Garden” is located.


      This is a very popular program that as many as 1,650 people participated in the previous time.  The event will be held on Sunday, January 21, 2018, from 10:00 to 17:00 (reception by 15:00).  The venues are Yokohama Landmark Tower (2-2-1 Minatomirai, Nishi-ku, Yokohama City) and Mitsubishi Minatomirai Industrial Museum (3-3-1 Minatomirai, Nishi-ku, Yokohama City).  You can reach their website with the keyword “スカイクライミング (sky climbing)”.


      The event has two programs.  The first one is “Yokohama Landmark Tower Sky Climbing”.  This is to go up the stairs of Yokohama Landmark Tower, the No. 1 high riser in Kanagawa Prefecture.  Participants who completed the 1,458 stairs to the 69th floor will be given a certificate.  There is an observatory “Sky Garden” on the floor, which commands a superb view of Mt. Fuji on a fine day.  The admission fee is usually \1,000.  The view from the floor must be something special to see after climbing all the stairs on foot.

One of the prizes: Physical activity meter


      The second program is stamp rally in the neighboring Mitsubishi Minatomirai Industrial Museum.  It is a hands-on museum of science and technology.  Visitors, both adults and children, can enjoy learning the latest technologies in the aerospace, marine, environment and energy fields.  Those who finish the stamp rally can get participation prize.  After that, why don’t you try your luck?  Join the lottery with a chance to win items useful for promoting your health, like a physical activity meter, leg massager and electronic thermometer.


      You may feel dizzy when looking up this high riser tower, but it’s a great and rare opportunity to climb it on your own.  A beautiful panoramic view is waiting for you at Sky Garden!
