Why Yokohama Park is special ?

Yokohama Park—situated just in front of JR Kannai station—has been a place of rest and relaxation for everyone for 137 years. In 1875, a British technologist, Richard Henry Brunton designed this cozy park between the Japanese part of town and the foreign settlement. In those days, foreigners played cricket there sometimes, and soon baseball games to promote international friendship were taking place between Japanese and foreign teams. Now the park is the home ground stadium of Yokohama DeNA Bay Stars. Tulips bloom beautifully here in May, and the park's Japanese garden is colored with pink azaleas in June.

Situated at the centre of Yokohama, midst the office buildings, the Yokohama Park is accompanied with a wonderful garden where thousands of tulips bloom in late April. We can enjoy the wide variation of colours or rare species which have unique shapes or colours.
