Welcome to part 3 of my Naka Ward walk. This time, it’s Minato-no-Mieru Oka Koen, or Harbour View Park. It’s in Yamate, and has the best view of Yokohama Bay Bridge. At the time, not many flowers were blooming. I’ve read that spring and fall are the best times to see flowers. So, here are the pictures!

Crossing the river to go to Yamashita Park, I noticed these white things in the river.
Let's zoom closer. They're jellyfish!
Yes, jellyfish in the river. I was surprised. There were hundreds of them! Anyway, this is the end of part 3. Next part will be Yamashita Park (and possibly the rest of the pictures).
