There are six pleasant parks alongside Yokohama Bay. Rinko Park is just behind the Pacifico Yokohama (Hotel and Convention Center). You can enjoy a really beautiful bay view from here, but it is actually a little known spot for visitors. If you stay at a hotel in the Minato-Mirai 21 area, please be sure to take a walk in this park. It's also a great place to have a picnic. There is a pond in the northwest corner of the park into which seawater comes pouring in during high tide. 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。
