Yokohama Park


"First Park with a Western Garden"

Yokohama Park is located next to Yokohama Stadium, home of the Yokohama Bay Stars, Yokohama's baseball team. Yokohama Park itself was opened in 1876 and was the first public park with a Western-style garden in Japan. Yokohama Park also has a Japanese-style garden, a broad grassy play area, and a plaza with a statue of an elephant. Water gushes from the elephant's trunk and creates quite a picturesque image. Legend has it that during the catastrophic 1923 earthquake all those who made it to Yokohama Park survived. The extensive water pipe system for the gardens ruptured and turned the large grassy areas into a sea of mud and a sea of life. Every year a memorial bazaar is held here to commemorate the opening of the Port of Yokohama from the last week of May to the first week of June.
