Nice area with older Western style houses

Like the title says, it's a unique area in Yokohama. I recommend going for a walk if you have the chance but only if your in the area.

This is western style garden - seems to be the first of its nature in Japan. One of my favorite evening spots on leisure days. Lot of activities around, children playing, photographers waiting for that better snap, old men chatting and trying luck with fishing rods, lovers chit chatting and what not.. A great place to be. Don't miss this... More

A nice view of the sea, a lovely garden, and a good place to walk around. It was quiet on a Monday afternoon. I enjoyed my time here.

It is a large park with manicured lawns and plants where people can come sit down, play games and relax. Parts of the park were cordoned off presumably for lawn maintenance but that did not stop the walk through. There are food outlets nearby as well as other attractions.

This park is very near to Osanbash pier. Main things to see inside park are: Indian fountain, A girl with red boot statue, flower park and guardian of the water statue.

I had to search for the statue of the girl with the red shoes! The surrounding park was so neat and well maintained. Loved the area to stroll around. Plenty of grass or benches to sit on and enjoy the harbour view too

The Park occupies some 200 metres of the Port frontage with well manicured gardens, statues and fountains. On our visit in July there was some substantial areas being refurbished and restocked. However it is close to Port Hotels and provides a pleasant early morning walk!

We had a lovely walk through the park this afternoon. There are plenty of benches to people watch. Many locals were walking their dogs. Some grass space to run in but no play equipment.

Beautiful park with nice views of the harbor. Lots of history in the area. If you are touring, buy a book and read about Yokohama and the Yamashita-cho area.
