Nice walk

In January there is no much greenery but still a pleasant walk. We enjoyed watching the dog walkers and even a rabbit on a leash being walked!

My husband and I lived in Minato Mirai area of Yokohama, it was an awesome place to live. Many days I would walk the sea walk from our apartment to Yamashita Park, it would take me 45 minutes but if you are a tourist and have the time, you will want to stop along the way and take pictures and...

We took a boat trip down the bay from Pier 21 to Yamashita Park which is an iconic location in the city of Yokohama. This a delightful place to walk and enjoy the beautiful scenery, and I can only imagine what it must look like in March when the Sakura (Cherry Blossom) is in full bloom. It was great to... More

The history of Yokohama is so amazing, especially this park which was created from earthquake debris after the 1923 Great Kanto earthquake. You can walk all along this waterfront all the way to the doll museum and if you feel up to it, go past the doll museum and take the steep hill up to Yamate and the foreigners cemetery,... More

Did 2 morning run around the Yamashita Park... The track and environment is nice for running... As you will run along the water line, pass the cruise terminal and also alongside the Red Brick House. Worse the time and effort for the morning run... Nice feeling and refreshing.

You can enjoy the Yokohama waterfront with a stroll through this park. Every step of the way you can enjoy either the Yokohama skyline or the comings and goings of ships in the harbour. And if you get the right weather, maybe even a glimpse of Tokyo. Well worth a visit!

I have never had any high expectations on this seaside park until I set foot on it in November, 2015. Its beauty blew me away. Paired with autumn foliage around the park, I could easily spend few hours strolling along its seaside walkway. Along the seaside, there is NYK Hikawa Maru (a ship museum) which is not free. And Yokohama... More

A good place to sit and relax, with a good view of the harbour. Spacious with lots of benches, beautiful sculptures and landscape.

After alighting from the Seabass ferry, we walked through a considerable amount of the park. It is lovely, relaxing, but not for "active" jaw-dropping tourism. Yes, there are joggers, but strolling seems to be the norm.

This great park is ideal for a stroll & viewing traffic in the bay & people watching. Lovely garden & fountain features. Dont miss the statue of the little girl with the red shoes - everyone has touched them!
