About Yamashita Park
This is a park facing the sea, and the most famous one inside is probably the Hikawa Maru cruise ship, which was the highest-class cruise ship in Japan from 1930 to 1960. This ship is now a museum, and you can go on board to visit it.
On the day we went there, we saw seats being set up and booths being set up, and later we learned that there would be a fireworks festival the next day.
There are also many beautiful plants in Yamashita Park, mostly rosebushes, and there are all kinds of species.
Yamashita Park is located on the left hand side of Yokohama’s Chinatown gate, not far from the Red Yokohama Brick Warehouse and Mirai Port.
Afternoons here are pleasant and relaxing, with many locals, families, friends, couples, etc., gathering here to enjoy the relaxing warm afternoon sun.
The flowers and grass everywhere, the fresh air, the cool breeze, the warm sunshine, the open view and visibility, the shots are beautiful, sit for three to five hours, chatting, chatting with foreign friends and locals, chatting about their respective living environment, a lot of fun, and then go to the nearby hotels to sit in the coffee shop, the nearby supermarket to sweep the goods, or to the Chinese street inside to appreciate the life of fellow countrymen in other countries. Then, at night, you can go to the future port to see the night view.
It takes about 5 minutes to walk from Yokohama Chinatown facing the sea, which is very close.
One of the scenes in “Dating~What is love~”, where Yoko and the high lover met for the first time.
Yamashita Park is a beautiful and romantic place. Walking along the beach, the slow sea breeze blowing in the face, the salty taste makes people feel very comfortable (inland children do not have much to the sea, every time I see the sea is very excited)
Glacier pill on the sea quietly waiting for tourists to visit, but unfortunately we came a little late, there is no upload visit.
How to get there
1: 3 minutes walk from Motomachi and Chinatown Station on the Minato Mirai Line
2: 1 minute walk from Sakuragicho Station on the JR or municipal subway, transfer to 26, and get off at Yamashita Park-mae.
From Chinatown Station on the Minato Mirai Line, I followed the directions to Yamashita Park. The Yamashita Park in my mind is very small, after all, Yokohama is not that big. Not far from the exit, you can see the landmark Seaside Tower, and across the road is Yamashita Park.
When we entered the tree-lined Yamashita Park, my impression changed completely. It is a large scale seaside park, and the biggest attraction is the bay, in addition to the trees, flowers and fountains that are usually found in parks. Old people and children are here either relaxing or playing, and several elderly women are painting and sketching, adding to the feeling of color and vitality of life.
The docking point for sightseeing boats is also quite beautiful, and in the distance is the dazzling future of the harbor!
