Yamashita Park, Yokohama
(4.2/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The thing with yellow leaves of the Ginkgo tree, Ginkgo tree-lined walks in front of Yamashita Park visited and was fast and began to color was. Japan boulevard lined with Ginkgo trees are famous, but also and early. Yesterday, today is 11/12 Indian summer to warm. There are people running lightly. The wind gently blowing, but feels nicely in the running state. Best time of the year, next week, I do not!

  • When staying at the Yokohama runs here. Seaside Park, beautiful flowerbeds, feels good. Yokohama city itself beautifully appointed and tourist-friendly. Posting location details, so easily lost sense of direction also. And literature at the eastern end of the Yamashita Park where you want to go!.

  • It's beautiful especially when the flowers are in bloom. It is also beautiful during Fall too. This is a good place to go for a run on evenings (less crowded) although many still do during daytime.There is a Happy Lawson, water fountains, and vending machines.
  • Romantic, beautiful, quiet, and elegant
  • Just a normal park by the ocean bay. Nothing really spectacular. If you happen to be in Yokohama, can stop by for a short stroll and also visit Japan's largest Chinatown for dinner or lunch.
  • Great walk and in the end the view is realy beautiful... in the evening should be very romantic
  • It is nice because there is ocean next to it. Otherwise it not incredible or awesome. Just a normal park
