This park is very walkable from where our ship docked in Yokohama. It is a pleasant place to walk around, watch people, enjoy its beauty & just plain relax. Very near by, is the Chinatown area, where there is a sharp contrast to the peacefulness of this park.

Its a great place to walk around, allot of shops, culture and nice view. The spring and summer time is ideal since more vendors will be around.

Although there for a sporting event where the venue consumed a great portion of the park the ambiance was still quite obvious. The floral collections and variety are so very beautiful. What a great place to sit and view the ships the people and ponder Yokohama relaxed

Great park for a stroll along the harbor. Plenty of nearby restaurants and access to Sea Bass cruise. Worth the visit and boat ride!

It resembles a bit the parks on the waterfront of south of France.The park misses more flowers but it is a decent size one to walk and has some attractions like the old boat Hikawa Maru, as well as the Marine Tower.Nice environment.

When we were there, there were many displays of designed floral themes, all very interesting. There were many students, families and older people enjoying the beautiful sunny day. The toilets were nearby and clean. There are sculptures and water features.Security personnel were present.

You can walk right along the way, take in the sea air, and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the space. I wouldn't go out of my way for it but if you have some time its lovely and peaceful.

Yamashita Park is a nice place to leisurely spend some time to relax and enjoy the beautiful sights. We were there early in the morning and most shops were still closed. Could have stayed longer if not for the rain showers, and not much cover from the open park. Would like to visit this place again.

Love the atmosphere of the park. It is situated between a bay and lovely buildings. There are contemporary and historic buildings. Locals with dogs (Yokohama residents are known for pets loving) and tourists strolling through the park.
