I might be the only one writing a review in English, since all I saw were in Japanese. Anyway, the park is not a tourist spot or a hidden gem. It is just behind Kishine subway station. A safe and big park, with drinking fountains, large sandpit area for children and big playground. The equipment in the playground is not brand new or plastic like most in Singapore, but it gives a retro feel and maintained well. People come here to exercise in the mornings, mothers bring their children to pay here, students come to jog, etc... It really gives you a peek into the everyday life of Japanese. Coming to food (Singaporean's favourite topic), there is a Danny's (extinct in Singapore for now), Lawson's (Japanese "combini", a version of 7-11), a gym and indoor swimming pool next door and a station away from Shin-Yokohama station. If you happen to be in Shin-Yokohama, and want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Shin-Yokohama, take the subway to the next stop.
