"The Most Romantic Park in Yokohama"

Yamashita Park is a one-kilometer-long seaside park that is thought by most long-term residents to be the spiritual heart of Yokohama City. Yamashita Park is in a way a legacy of the disastrous 1923 earthquake. The park was built on top of the dumping ground for the thousands of tons of rubble and debris caused by the quake. In 1930 Yamashita Park rose, phoenix-like, from the ashes of the old Yokohama. The park's Ginko trees have become a symbol of Yokohama. At the left end of the park near the Osanbashi Pier is a water tower monument to the Indians who perished in the 1923 earthquake. Yamashita Park is a very romantic place for a stroll along the waterfront. The park is especially appealing during the summer fireworks festivals.
