Umi no Koen
It is the only park that has a beach in Yokohama, Kanagawa. Since it is situated near Tokyo, it is a popular beach that many people can easily visit. Although it is made of artificial sand, you can see many marine creatures such as clams and crabs. Therefore, it is also a famous place to gather shellfish in spring. Furthermore, you can also enjoy many water activities such as windsurfing. There is also a jogging course, a field, where you can enjoy soccer or rugby, and rent barbecue equipment. It is a great park to enjoy outdoor activities all year long.

Popular place for shellfish gathering
There are a rich variety of natural shellfish on this beach. Therefore, it is a popular place for shellfish gathering situated near Tokyo. You can gather clams, thin-shelled surf clams, razor clam, etc., from the middle of March to June. Many people come here from far, so it is very crowded during shellfish gathering season.
Beach near the city of Tokyo
Many people visit Umi no Koen in every summer. Because the sea is shallow near the shore with quiet waves, it is a popular place among family with small children. I recommend you to drop by after visiting Yokohama.
Enjoy water sports
Umi no Koen is also a great place to enjoy various activities such as windsurfing. On top of that, there is a field on the beach where you can play beach volley ball or beach soccer.
