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.

Yamashita Park Reviews
Yamashita Park is very clean and well maintained, close to the Yokohama Bay area, maybe you should take a umbrella in case of wind and rain! more »
8月も終わりの頃に三渓の美術展を見た後に海の方に向うと綺麗な夕日、それを眺めながら散歩をしているとみるみる辺りが暗くなり夕日の落ちた後のマーリンルージュのライトアップなどに見とれて、山下公園に入ると遠くに観覧車やみなとみらいの建物のライトとスカイラインが綺麗でした。秋も良いと思います来月辺りにまた行って見たいです。 more »After seeing the art exhibition of Sankei around the end of August, when I turned to the sea, I saw a beautiful sunset, and when I was taking a walk while looking at it, I was able to see the light-up of Merlin Rouge after the sunset fell. When I entered Yamashita Park, the ferris wheel and Minato Mirai building were beautiful and the lights and skyline were beautiful. I think autumn is good, but I want to go to next month and see it again.
