INTERCONTINENTAL YOKOHAMA PIER8

INTERCONTINENTAL YOKOHAMA PIER8

Bon Voyage!
Situated on land projecting into the sea off Yokohama, the InterContinental Yokohama Pier 8 itself appears to be floating in the water, as it welcomes super luxury cruise lines from all over the world. The interior concept "Bon Voyage!" evokes feelings of ocean breeze, the water surface, sunlight, and the natural swaying of the ocean. Entrance staircases spiral like the sea shells on a beach, and guest rooms are designed with large windows that can be opened to the sea breeze. The design goal was a hotel where guests can enjoy a sense of excitement and freedom, as if on an ocean cruise.
