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.

The park was great for a usual weekend. Families, friends and many people were there enjoy their afternoons. The park got really excited though on the day of Sparkling Twilight. Starting from the afternoon, there were ship parade which all kinds of ships showing off. At night, the fireworks was really beautiful. In between, Yamashita park and the restaurants and... More

We go to this park quite often. After disembarking from sea bass, nice park to stroll. With beautiful roses depending on season. During autumn ginkgo leaves falling...there are some nice pancake restaurant nearby, eggs and things and cinnamons. Happy Lawson is another good place for parents with young kids. Kids can play and moms can have a cuppa.
