Japanese Garden next to Stadium

A great place to feel autumn in Yokohama

By Tomoko Kamishima    - 1 min read

Yokohama Stadium is located at Yokohama Park, just a kitty-corner away from JR Kannai Station (Kehin Tohoku/Negishi Line). In 1876, when it was established, Yokohama Park was in the middle of what was called "Japanese Town" and the "Foreign Settlement". And interestingly, the very first international baseball game (a Japanese student team vs. a team of foreigners) took place here.

Although not so many people know it, there is a very nice Japanese garden in the corner of this park.

Government offices, restaurants, bars, and many shops surround this small garden, but a nice grove of trees shuts out all the noise. When you step into the garden, you feel completely relaxed with the sound of birds and water. Especially in autumn, the garden shows us its best beauty. I think it’s a great place to feel Japanese autumn in the city of Yokohama.

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS:  An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here.  日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。
