Overview

Honmoku Shimin Park was created on land donated by Adachi Kenzo, builder of the nearby 'Hasseiden' in 1969. There are grassy areas, some wooded knolls running along the cliff edge, and a series of overgrown pools stuffed with water plants and dragonflies. The pools open out into a lake, where a walkway leads to the Shanghai-Yokohama Friendship Garden. Nearby is the southern gate into Sankei-en Gardens. Honmoku Shimin Park also boasts a fine swimming pool (open July and August), a retired steam train and turntable, tennis courts and a children's play area. Moreover, a climb up the pathways behind the swimming pool leads to the Hasseiden Local Museum. The park is also home to the Yokohama Jazz Festival in August. - AH
