Yamashita Park, Yokohama

(1,300+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
A peaceful public space, Yamashita Park faces Yokohama's waterfront. After the 1923 earthquake that left much of Yokohama in ruin, the city government recycled the rubble from the disaster to build this park, first opened in 1930. The space now contains a 1929 Japanese ocean liner converted into a ship museum, as well as assorted notable sculptures, including a Girl Scout statue marking the 50th anniversary of the popular youth organization. Bring a picnic and spread out on the park's grassy, landscaped lawns. Add Yamashita Park and other attractions to your Yokohama trip itinerary using our Yokohama itinerary builder.

  • Events, Sea shore, Port, Garden, Ferries, etc. Easy accessibility from Minatomirai line. Crowded. Good for family to spend free time on weekends. Hanabi (Fireworks) in Summer is main attraction.
  • A park next to sea. I could really enjoyed the slow life in this place. And the view was amazing and peaceful.
  • Nice and good location too just sit and enjoy the weather. Enjoy flowers, the sea breeze and just relax
  • Beautiful views. It is a romantic place. It is also notorious for couples breaking up there, but I don't believe it.
  • It's beautiful and peaceful. Beautiful view. Romantic obviously.
