At Yokohama Park, more than 160,000 tulips are blooming in mid April. Here, colorful tulips nod and sway in a gentle breeze. Along with the common red, yellow, and white tulips, there are some unusual types of tulips: purple, pale green, sharp-edged, and fully opened.
Yokohama Park (just outside Yokohama Stadium) is located in a business district, just a 5-minute-walk from JR Kannai Station, and next to Yokohama City Office. At noon, people were enjoying the tulips while eating their lunch.

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。
