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.

Its is basically a big open park as the title suggests but go down on Sunday mornings when the Taichi (pardon the spelling) slow motion martial arts gang are in full flow. Always lots of people and having some space makes a welcome change

You are near so many amazing things with this park that it is a great place to just collapse and enjoy the grass and scenery. My husband and I had just finished a tour on the Hiwaka and decided to get drinks out of the vending machine and just sit and watch. It is incredibly neat watching how people in... More

I visit Yamashita Park many times during the course of a week, and it's always beautiful under any conditions. Early morning walks or midnight strolls, just strikingly beautiful and sometimes serene; if it's in the silence of the early a.m. hours. You can see the skyline that is the trademark of Yokohama City from the Yamashita Park,day and night. In... More

Yamashita Park is one of the larger park space areas along the waterfront at Yokohama Port. Many Tokyo-ites head to Yokohama on the weekend in nice weather to soak up the atmosphere and be down near the water. The park itself isnt extraordinary but it does usually have a quite a bit going on. It is frequently the venue on... More

The park was near my hotel. It was nice to walk through with some monuments and statues. I wanted to go on the retired cruise ship but is was closed.

We were there this Wednesday afternoon after spending some time in the Chinatown nearby. There were few people around, with some children running around happily. There were lots of space to stroll and it was quite relaxing to do so. A sharp contrast to the disorderly and crowded Chinatown.

This is close to the ocean, but there is not much traffic so when traveling with kids, this was a good area for them to run around. There were lots of other people, mostly Japanese, when we visited, and they were, as all Japanese people seem to be, very friendly. There was a flower competition in the park during our... More
