Nogeyama Park lies on the slope of a low hill and commands an extensive view of Yokohama and port. Laid out after 1923 [following the Great Kanto Earthquake], it is the largest park in Yokohama and gives a good example of Japanese landscape gardening. Besides, a large swimming pool, open-air theater, entertainment hall, children’s playground, zoo, etc. in the park combine to make it one of the chief attractions of this metropolis.”
