Yamashita Park

Japan's first seaside park, located just in front of the port of Yokohama, extends for nearly 700 metres on the east side of Osanbashi to Yamashita Pier. It was inaugurated in 1930 by a rubble backfill from the Great Kanto earthquake.

The park includes a grassy field, a rose garden, a statue of the "Little Red Shoe Girl", a statue of the "Water Keeper" donated by San Diego, Yokohama's twin city, and the song monument "Kamome no Suihei-san (Seagull Sailor)", a staircase and a stage. The former cargo and passenger ship Hikawamaru is anchored there.
