Minato Mirai, Yokohama
One of the nicest places in the Tokyo area, in my opinion---and that of many others. There is a huge shopping mall there near Sakuragicho station, the tallest building in Kanto, (if not in Japan) of over 60 stories. You can take a cruise on Yokohama Bay, or take a small boat and visit Chinatown. You can easily spend a whole day here. It can be very cold and windy in the winter, but cooler than most places in the summer.
Nearby is the Yokohama immigration port. An unusually shaped structure, to say the least.
