“Nice strolling, people watching and MacArthur's bedroom is pretty close by”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Another Sea Bass stop that gives a great stroll and people-watching opportunity and within easy walking of Chinatown and Motomachi. Some neat sculpture, often special events such as word gastronomy festival, bands, great fireworks watching in summer and so on. A nice mix of Japan/foreign enclave vibe remains from the days of yore and MacArthur's bedroom can be found in the Grand if you look hard enough. The bar in the Grand is well worth a whistle-wetting stop and if stay long enough, you likely won't care if you find the General's bedroom or not.

“Lovely Park”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Great park to take a walk by the bay. Walking from Minato Mirai , the Ferris Wheel and Yamashita park is possible if weather is cool and you stop for breaks .
You can also take ferry rides to the other side of the bay if you want. Park has lots of interesting monuments and the stories are amusing.

“A Nice Relaxing Stroll on the Waterfront”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We walked through here one Sunday afternoon after Mass in Yamate Cathedral and breakfast at the Cheesecake Cafe. A very relaxing break and excellent for people watching. Not many tourists here - just people out enjoying the park and sea air.

“Good for people watching”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

This is a nice park for people watching, as it seems everyone strolls here during the evening. Nice fountain also.
But there's not much else to do-I wouldn't make a special trip here, but if you're passing by it's worh a walk thru.

“Relaxing!!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Living in Japan for 2 years I spent hours riding, walking and jogging through this park. Beautiful to stroll through on a hot summer's evening. Lots of activities happening...family art days, sports events, food expos etc.
