There are six pleasant parks alongside Yokohama Bay. Zo-no-hana (Elephant Nose) Park was newly opened in 2009 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the opening of Yokohama Port. When the port was first opened, two jetties were built here. One of them was extended in a curve, and it looked like an elephant’s nose. The name of the park came from the shape of the jetty. This park is located between Aka-renga Park and Yamashita Park. You’ll find screen panels here arranged to show perspective in the park. At night the panels light up and change color from white to purple to blue. An index of this series is here.
