Japanese people are just amazing. Strolling through the park I noticed retired Japanese cleaning the gardens. Upon asking they said they do it for free. They love gardens, and not having one of your own, makes working in public gardens such a pleasurable experience. Wow! Wonder if I would do that when I'm retired

My favourite park for walk or just spend time regardless seasons or times of a day. Never tired of citing the park.

Great for a relaxing seafront stroll with great views over the harbour towards the Bay Bridge or to Minato Mirai... Great for jogging, running, playing... Great for people watching and hanging out...

Loved this park along the waterfront. Heaps of locals walking dogs, jogging, playing and tourists taking photos. It is great to walk along this park to get to other places of interest...better than catching the bus!

Yamashita Park is so lovely -- in the fall it has the rows of beautiful, yellow ginko trees lining the street behind it, in the summer one of the biggest fireworks festivals in Japan. Just a charming, lovely place. Yokohama is incredibly civilized. Think From Up on Poppy Hill.

This is the biggest park in Yokohama, facing the bay, it offers a nice stroll for all and is a scene to many activities and festivals. Enjoy a boat ride from there to the Red Brick House or Bay Quarters near Yokohama station

Another Sea Bass stop that gives a great stroll and people-watching opportunity and within easy walking of Chinatown and Motomachi. Some neat sculpture, often special events such as word gastronomy festival, bands, great fireworks watching in summer and so on. A nice mix of Japan/foreign enclave vibe remains from the days of yore and MacArthur's bedroom can be found in... More

Great park to take a walk by the bay. Walking from Minato Mirai , the Ferris Wheel and Yamashita park is possible if weather is cool and you stop for breaks . You can also take ferry rides to the other side of the bay if you want. Park has lots of interesting monuments and the stories are amusing.
