Yamashita Park is a public park facing the water, providing scenic views. It is hard to miss the Hikaru Maru, a retired ocean liner now serving as a museum. There are various statues around the park, hiding with the beautiful flowers in spring time. This is a nice place to stroll for some relaxation and rest from the shopping!

We can enjoy taking a walk from Minatomirai to Yamashita Park through Akarenga-Souko. Also, China-town & Minatonomieru-Oka-Kouen are very close.

Nice park on the Yokohama Bay. Beautiful gardens nice architectural monuments. Great park to stroll and enjoy the views of the bay. If you're there early morning the work crews haven't got around to clean so there's usually a little trash i.e. Cigarette butts, pop cans, etc. but the ground crews do manage to keep it relatively clean including the...

Lovely park right opposite the New Grand Hotel in which I stayed. I felt very safe and comfortable here. You can walk through the park heading over to the Red Brick Warehouses. Lovely, well maintained gardens.

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.

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

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
