    I left Queensland for the zoo around 1:00 pm. But between subways, trains, lunch and a bus I didn't arrive until 3:30 pm

    And it closes at 4:30 pm !!! Why didn't I research this ?

    Anyway, I power walked for 60 minutes between animals.
    The grounds were beautiful.

    We went for the countdown 2020 and trains were still running after midnight so it was easy to go back to Yokohama.

    The special countdown dolphins show was nice to watch.

    The fireworks was awesome but only lasted for a short while.

    Great views across Yokohama Harbour from here and as a bonus there were replicas of the flags which were a feature of the Ghibli/Miyazaki anime – 'From Up on Poppy Hill'. There is also a commemorative plaque which provides brief information about the film’s setting (Yokohama/Yamate in 1963) and the flags.

    The capybaras are extremely friendly and chill. The workers are very polite and welcoming. Very good experience!

    横浜のみなとみらい地区にあるいくつかの公園の中でも、広々とした芝生の公園です。遊具は一切ありませんが、かけっこをしたりのんびりと寛いだりダンスの練習をしたりと思い思いにひと時を過ごすのにピッタリの場所です。
    沿岸に設けられた他の公園と同様に、東京湾に面している沿岸部の柵は大人の腰の高さほどであるため、ボール等遠方へ投げる遊びをする際は充分注意した方がいいでしょう。また、他の公園と比較すると樹木の数が少ないため、木陰で休む場所がかなり限定されてしまいます。小型のテントを持ち込む等、特に夏場の熱中症対策を採るべきでしょう。
    この公園では特にイベントが模様されることも多くないため、一年を通して非常に混雑する場所ではありません。しかし沿岸部が公園の東にあることから、初日の出スポットとして有名で、元旦にはベイブリッジと初日の出を見るために多くの人が訪れます。

    Among the several parks in the Minato Mirai area of Yokohama, this is one of the most spacious grassy parks. There is no playground equipment at all, but it is a perfect place to spend some time running around, relaxing, or practicing dance.
    As with other coastal parks, the fence along the shore facing Tokyo Bay is about the height of an adult's waist, so it is best to be careful when playing with balls or other objects thrown far away. Also, there are fewer trees than in other parks, so places to rest in the shade are quite limited. You may want to bring a small tent or take other measures to prevent heat stroke, especially in summer.
    The park is not a very crowded place throughout the year, especially since there are not many events held there. However, because the coastal area is to the east of the park, it is famous as a sunrise spot, and many people come here on New Year's Day to see the Bay Bridge and the sunrise.

    This formal garden (free to enter) is lovely and extremely well-kept and has plenty of seating and some lovely shady trees. On one side there are great views of modern Yokohama which contrast with the lovely 1910’s Victorian Home of a Diplomat which overlooks the garden on the other side.

    I recently visited this park which is somewhat off the beaten path and not well known by tourists. My primary goal was to check out the cherry blossoms as I had read it is one of the top 100 places in Japan to view them. The park is larger than I expected and is made up of several large ponds bordered by many sakura trees. The park has hilly parts so you can also see cherry blossoms leading up to the hillside. For the more energetic, you can climb up and trek around the hillsides within the park, otherwise if you prefer a more leisurely wander, you can stick to walking along the paths that border the ponds. I did a mix of both. Wear practical shoes if you want to go off the paths and trek up and around the hills.

    The park was very pretty even though the sakura were not fully in bloom. There was a lot of birdlife in the park too! In addition to the sakura, there is a gorgeous Korean garden that is a must see. Outside the main gate to the garden are two very comical liondogs to welcome you and two wooden totem poles all with cheezy grins! The garden is bordered by a lovely traditional clay wall and inside are 2 gazebos, a small pond and stream, some lovely clay urns and a very beautiful wooden structure with stunning decorative wooden panels. You can enter inside the structure and see some traditional wooden furnishings. Don't miss out on this garden if you go to the park!

    There are not many places to purchase food in the park- in fact I saw only one shop and it sold mainly confectionary so if you want to go for lunch, bring your own! There are vending machines around the place to purchase drinks and icecream. Outside the park near the bus stop is a lovely little cafe where you can grab a coffee or a meal- limited choices.

    To get there, I caught the train to Tsurumi station then Bus No. 07 that dropped me right out the front of a car park and main entry point to the park but note the name of this stop is not Mitsuike Koen (that is the stop earlier) but the next stop called "KOEN SEIMON" (very confusing- i got off at Mistuike Koen and then the driver beckoned me back on the bus!). the bus trip took about 12-15 minutes. But note that the bus has a very limited timetable and there were no return buses from the hours of 2pm to 4:27pm on a weekday. On a weekend or public holiday there is 1 bus at 2:07pm and 3:11pm then 2 buses every hour from 4-6pm. There is a carpark but it is small and during sakura season, it may be difficult to get a park.

    Entry to the park is free! For people with children, there are lots of areas for the kids to play in including a rock climbing wall and a slide where you need a piece of cardboard to go down it.

    A lovely park for a relaxing picnic and walk!

    this is what every busy city needs - a small area of green shade and water in which one can see some nature and hear ones thoughts.

    Not so far away from central parts, but different. Calmer, peaceful, well organized, lots of flowers, roses. This time of year not so flowerimpressive, but very well taken care of.
    Little shop, restaurant, benches for rest and shadow. Nice place!

    Art Festival was held here at the middle of September. Apparently it’s 20th anniversary and there were lots of workshops, concerts, attractions and food stools with lively atmosphere.

    We wish we got there early as it was more than just festival but education about ecology and diversity.

    Regardless the festival, it’s a great place to stroll on the way to sea paradise.
