The best thing about the park is the long walk along the waterfront. You can walk almost the entire stretch to Red Brick House and continue further till you reach Minato Mirai. It's a quite long walk but enjoyable and relaxing with places to sit and relax on the way. There is Hikawa Maru, ocean liner, docked there but I... More

When the flowers are in bloom, the caretakers do a wonderful job of making sure the whole place is alive with all kinds of colors. Great date spot!

This is a gorgeous park, in an excellent location. It is very suitable for photography, bird watching, people watching, relaxing, and just hanging out. There is a beautiful fountain at the center of the park, plenty of wide open space, and not terribly crowded. If you are in Yokohama and like nice place to unwind this is it.

For all the raves about Yamashita Park, you would think it was the world's greatest treasure. It's an open space for people to relax and hang out, with shaded areas and overlooking the water. If that's what you need and you are nearby then, sure, take it in, but it's not worth a special trip. You might visit, though, to... More

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!
