PACIFICO Yokohama North
Our new facility “PACIFICO Yokohama North,” designed with the motif of “Migiwa,” meaning the shore or water’s edge. The roof depicts many kinds of waves, and its exterior white wall surfaces create a formative beauty in line with the existing facility’s themes of shellfish, light, waves, and sails.


 
The Multi-Purpose Hall is the largest of its kind in Japan, at roughly 6,300 ㎡
With a ceiling height of 10 m, the Multi-Purpose Hall is perfectly suited for holding large-scale banquets. It is large enough for banquets with 2,000 seated guests or 5,000 guests in buffet style.


 
The Garden Lounge, a place to enjoy beautiful greenery
This is an open space along the pedestrian deck (Ocean Patio) that leads to the sea. This spacious glass-enclosed room is just perfect for holding small parties.
