Yamashita Park

The first seaside park in Japan located right in front of Yokohama Port, stretching almost 700 meters from the east side of Osanbashi to Yamashita Pier. It was opened in 1930 by land filling with the rubbles from the Great Kanto Earthquake.


The park includes a grass field, a rose garden, the "Little Girl With Red Shoes On" statue, the "Guardian of Water" statue which is a gift from San Diego, a sister city of Yokohama, and the "Kamome no Suihei-san (Seagull Sailor)" song monument, water stairs and a stage. The former cargo and passenger ship Hikawamaru is anchored here.
