To get to the Yokohama Smart Illuminations site:

• Get off the train at Minato-mirai station

• Go out Exit 4 and head toward the waterfront. Make your way toward Queen’s Square and you will start seeing lit-up artworks. Art is installed all over the waterfront area – it’s all lit up, so you can easily discover it once you’re near the water.

• Famous for plum blossoms in mid- to late-February

• You can take a cab from Negishi Station to Sankei-en, but the bus stops outside the station are clearly marked in English. Getting back to the station from the garden is easy, as there are easy-to understand maps near the exit, directing you to the place to wait for a bus that will take you directly back to the station.
