There are stunning views of Yokohama’s iconic beautiful scenery, including Yokohama Port and the Landmark Tower, and the park is popular for both its day and night views.

The anchored “NYK Hikawamaru” is open to the public, operating as a museum ship. It is a historic cargo liner, and it has been designated as an Important Cultural Property.

    山下公園的玫瑰園好大,玫瑰花真好看。還有停泊在海邊的大遊輪。特別是面海的開放感令人心情舒暢!真的非常推薦。
