We went to the Belgian Beer Weekend festival which was held in the Yamashita Park. The entire area surrounding the park was phenomenal. Beautiful views of the Bay!

This park is very near to Chinatown, about 5 mins away. It provides a long stretch for one to take a morning or evening walk with much to see. One can walk all the way to Minato Mirai. I only did the morning walk and I strongly recommend taking a walk in the evening to see the beautiful lighted ferry... More

Yamashita Park is peaceful and relaxing, with a great view of the harbor. It is easily acessible from the Minatormirai subway line. Great for people watching, boat watching, and jogging.

This is a beautiful park right along the waterfront in Yokohama. When we were there the flowers were in full bloom and it was a delightful place to stroll.

One of the largest garden/park in Yokohama that is well positioned to have a promenade seaview of Yokohama Port. Easily accessible from Nihon-odori sta. and Osanbashi it offers a great and relaxing seafront stroll with photographic views over the harbor towards both the Bay Bridge or to Minato Mirai. One can literally go for jogging, running, playing or simply people... More

A waterfront park with a view of the harbor. When we visited there were mostly locals enjoying the park. As tourists we liked the rose garden and the access to the Seabass water taxi and the Marine Shuttle.

This is a beautifully manicured park to come and relax. It's on the water with plenty of area and a really nice place for a walk.

Yamashita Park located about 5 minutes walk from Yokohama China Town. It was really a nice park to walk around. In the middle of the park there is a beautiful fountain with a statue called Guardian of Water which was presented to the people of Yokohama by the people of San Diego in May 1960. It was almost dawn when... More

We were in Japan during golden week and went to Yamashita Park several times. The flowers there were absolutely beautiful and the grounds so beautifully kept. There were two water features that we loved. One was like a mosaic snake going down the tiers to the park, and the other was The Guardian of Water given to the people of... More
