Nice stroll along portside

Walked of the cruise ship towards the tower and stumbled across this park. Well laid out gardens alongside port area. Lovely

We took the Seabass boat to Yamashita Park and were surprised by the beauty of the park and of the rose bushes. There are some wonderful places to eat on the adjacent main road, so go get some lunch or dinner afterwards!

Had a lovely walk through here after getting off the Seabass ferry. Fountains, manicured lawns, quiet spots to relax or snack. Despite the season getting on there were wonderful roses in full bloom. Beautiful walking paths along the harbour and so much to see. Pack a lunch and watch the big and small ships.

I had intended to visit the MYK Hikawamaru exhibit, but arrived from Yokosuka far later than expected, so just did the waterfront walk from there to the Red Brick Warehouse. At the Northwest end of the promenade, I did not notice the elevated walkway that would take to directly to the Red Brick area, so ended up taking the streets... More

This park is full of greenery and flowers. Many rose gardens. People use this area for relaxing or workouts. Nice place to do your morning jog.

As with most Japanese parks, Yamashita Park did not disappoint. The Girl with the Red Shoes is a nice statue and is along the way to the Red Brick Building. The Red Brick Building is a real treat. Lots of very interesting, modern and tastefully appointed stores. A lot of people, dogs, kids and great food. Should be on your... More

Stayed for 2 nights near here and found it very relaxing in the afternoons after spending the mornings walking around Chinatown and Minato Mirai.

I walked through this park on my way to another area. The park I suppose fills its function for a Quick recreation or walking the dog but it was neither so big or pretty and most of the grass was off limits. I would recommend other parks or other activities before coming here for the sake of just coming here.... More

I thought this park was the most beautiful park/garden I visited in the greater Tokyo area! It was very well maintained, had excellent views, and had lots to explore (make sure to see the part south of the river - it's worth it to climb the very tall staircase). I did several morning runs through the park because it was... More

We walked to this park from the Red brick house towards Chinatown. The park is well maintained with a very green section filled with trees and bushes, followed by grass patches for picnics, the a fountain with flowers and then a beautiful rose garden.
