Minato Mirai 21 - Day & Night View

I was sorting out my recently received postcards last weekend and I had a pleasant surprise! I noticed the postcard that my colleague sent to me from her Yokohama trip back in April is the day time view: 
Sent from Yokohama, Japan, Traveled 5,291 km

...of the postcard I sent to myself when I went there in May:

Sent: 30 May 2015 from Yokohama, Japan
Traveled 5,291 km

One striking difference between the two postcards though is the presence of the Cosmo World Ferris Wheel on the night view postcard. It was for a time considered one of the biggest clocks in the world. It was mesmerizing to watch with all its magnificent changing bright lights!

I very much wanted to ride the Ferris Wheel as I haven't experienced this at all! We didn't have enough time so perhaps I'll try the one here in Singapore.

Have you experienced riding a Ferris Wheel? Was it fun?



  1. That would be a surprise to replicate your night postcard with the daytime view. Both are lovely scenes.

  2. Both pictures look fabulous!...Christine

  3. Hi Maria,

    Yes, I have ridden a Ferris wheel and enjoyed it, but I no longer want to get on another one as they make me dizzy. Isn’t it fun finding blues to share? Thanks for playing today.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  4. Beautiful postcards. Loved the ferris wheel all my life, but now it makes me dizzy. :(
    Hope you try it some time.

  5. friends thinking alike. I think that's neat.

  6. I think I like the daytime view best - not sure! They are both lovely! We sometimes go on the Ferris Wheel in Edinburgh which opens every Christmas. I've never been on the London Eye, but I'd like to do that sometime.

  11. Wonderful photo shares! I so love your postcard to self share too! I am loving to see all your travels here. Have a great week!

  12. Both night and day are beautiful vistas ... yes I could imagine a ride on that Ferris Wheel by night would be spectacular.

  13. Hi Maria .. fascinating to see them both together ... cheers Hilary
