[Harbor View Park (Minato-no-Mieru Oka Koen)]
A fantastic spot with a spectacular view overlooking the bay area
With a small rise overlooking the Yokohama bay area, this is one spot you can't miss when sightseeing in Yamate. The "English Rose Garden" has a mix of annual and perennial plants, so you can enjoy the roses and flowers throughout all four seasons. You can view the Yokohama Bay Bridge from the observation deck—a very popular night view spot. In the past, British troops resided at the top of the hill and French troops at the bottom. Because of this, the area holds buildings such as the remains of the old French Consulate and the British House Yokohama, the former residence of the British consular.
Flowers in full bloom surround a fountain in the "Garden of Fragrance"
