Yokohama's Yamashita Koen Park

Yokohama Bay Area Parks 2

By Tomoko Kamishima    - 1 min read

There are six pleasant parks alongside Yokohama Bay. Yamashita Park is the most popular park among them. Locals always come here to refresh themselves, and tourists can’t resist it either. I also like coming here to snap shots of kids playing and running around in the park’s wide open fields, dogs and their owners strolling in and out among the flower beds, and lovers doing what lovers do throughout the world! The Minato-mirai area, Aka-renga Park, Osanbashi Pier, Hikawa-maru ocean liner, and Marine Tower can all be seen from this park. An index of this series is here.

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。
