Travel Guide - Yamashita Park


Yamashita Park is Japan’s first ever seaside park stretches for about 700 meters along Yokohama Port. It offers wonderful views of the port at night, and is a popular spot for couples and families with children. The park was opened in 1930 by land filling with the rubbles from the Great Kanto Earthquake occurred in 1923.
The park includes a grass field, a rose garden, the "Little Girl With Red Shoes On" statue, the "Guardian of Water" statue which is a gift from San Diego, a sister city of Yokohama, and the "Kamome no Suihei-san (Seagull Sailor)" song monument, water stairs and a stage. Berthed at the far end of the park is the Hikawa Maru (163.3 meters in length), which plied the Pacific for three decades and has come to rest here. The ship is open for tours of the interior.
