We visited this waterfront park in the evening after visiting the nearby Chinatown. You have a great view of the harbour from the park. Minato Mirai 21 is also visible from the park. There is a wide promenade fronting the harbour running next to the park. The ship, Hikawa Maru, is a floating museum moored in Yamashita Park.

From one end to the other this is a great place for a stroll during morning, afternoon, or evening. It is right at the edge of the harbor and you can see the Ferris wheel at one end and a ship at the other you can go aboard.

Nothing spectacular about this park except that it has the view of the Yokohama Bay. The park itself is not very interesting, just a normal park.

Easily accessible from the Minato Mirai Line terminal station at Yokohama. A wonderful park on the seaside with well laid paths, nice landscaping, fountains and seating area. The park has many flower plants and it looks great when the flowers are in full bloom.

Strolled through Yamashita Park after our visit to Chinatown. It was a breezy afternoon, the flowers were in bloom and lots of people were out enjoying the beauty of the park.

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.
