Pleasant place to go on a nice day with well laid out gardens and a break away from the busy city. The nearby Silk Museum is well worth a visit and there are some interesting buildings dating back to the early days of Yokohama as a trading port.

We truly enjoyed walking along the boardwalk of Yamashita Park beside the Yokohama Harbour. Late at night, there were many couples enjoying a pleasant evening stroll and early in the morning, there were many people heading to work and almost an equal number enjoying their morning jog. Great sight lines and pleasant gardens.

Just a nice park in a city but well located along the sea. I preferred the Minato Mirai area, including the park beyond the Pacifico Conference Centre.

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.
