With sweeping views over the bustling city port, Harbor View Park represents a former military barracks-turned-vantage point. Wander the park to admire its manicured gardens and historic buildings, many of which once housed Western delegations. Take a look towards the water over the urban sprawl and you'll see city landmarks, including the towering harbor bridge. You can also stop by the park's museum, which chronicles the life and works of the novelist Osaragi Jiro, a native to the area. Using our world travel planner, Yokohama attractions like Harbor View Park can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
