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!

I went here last month during a Google Hangouts video conference with my bible study group on the states. Because of the time difference, I was "forced" to come here during the sunrise and I was glad I did. The smell of the sea and the quiet environment was just what I needed that morning to start the day right!... More

Yamashita Park sits on the historic waterfront that has welcomed steamers, presidents and dignitaries since the 19th Century, and still offers bay tours and maritime relics for visitors. Live performers occupy the open space on weekends, while bike riding, walking around the well-kept gardens or just a fall nap on the ground are all possible. It lies within walking distance... More

Such a lovely park, with beautiful views, nice greenery, and many people to watch. There are festivals of various kinds there, too. The girl with the red shoes statues is there, too.

Lovely green area with wide promenade along the shoreline and Osanbashi Pier in the distance, a cruise ship in port, views over the water and close to Yokohama Chinatown. Wonderful to stroll through small park area, sit awhile on a park bench to people watch and take time out from the hectic pace in the city. We observed a wedding... More

I mainly wanted to go here for a photo because there's a villain in the movie Samurai Cop called "Yamashita" the park is really nice, there was a guy doing magic at one entrance and lots of people having picnics. There's not exactly a lot to do here but it's good for photo's and Chinatown is a short distance if... More

This park runs along the bay and has great views (especially at night)- its also connected to the harbourside park (the stairs are great for some cardio) and the rest of the bay attractions

This is a nice promenade to stroll on. Some of the gardens were being replanted when I was there but the ones that were done were lovely. There are some nice statues along the way and the walk to the waterfalls at the end is very nice, coming back the view over the city is lovely.

Thank cazbatt
