Took a stroll from Osanbashi Pier through the park to Motormachi area on turnaround day on our cruise. It was steaming hot, otherwise it would have been a nice walk. It happened that it was clean-up day and many volunteers were there picking up trash. There was also some kind of rally at the end of the park so it... More

Nice little park by the harbour. Good for a stroll after visiting nearby shops and attractions. Very calm.

Next to the shore of Yokohama its this park that offers a green gateway to the city. Its really well maintain like everything in Japan but there is a special freshness around the area specially with the sea breeze. It has a great atmosphere and its a nice place to relax if you visit Yokohama....

Not too much to the park. In the spring they have some nice flowers, and there is a lovely boat docked there that's quite picturesque, but unless you're going there for a festival or event, don't make plans to spend the day. Just pass through for a scenic walk and a nice view of the port.

Really enjoyed strolling through this garden which had lots of flowers - even a rose garden. Very peaceful, relaxing spot.

I'm a resident, and bike up to this park almost weekly. It's a long stretch of waterfront on the Yokohama bay, at the southern end of a long stretch of touristy waterfront stretching up to Minato Mirai on the north. The view is amazing - the International Cruise Ship Dock on your left, and the Yokohama Bay Bridge on your... More

This is a decent park, located by the sea in Yokohama. There are lovely whimsical statues in the park and a fountain to match, but other than that it's just a green piece of land to stroll in, being a tad underwhelming.
