  • Submarine is a well-groomed impression. As seen from the outside, concrete and iron, which has been hardened. It is a dignified atmosphere.

  • It is the flagship of the battle of the Japan Sea determines the sex of the Russo-Japanese war Mikasa Memorial ship. It is a Memorial ship feels familiar veterans come to Ryotaro cloud on the slope. There is something I think standing on this bridge, Togo Heihachiro, Akiyama saneyuki and commanded the battle of the Japan Sea with deep emotion. Video has been restored correctly, surely will be the study of history.

  • Located 10 minutes ' walk from Yokosuka station and arrived at a stroll. From the Meiji era ships, Battleship is quite big. Is packed with exhibits, to the study of history and explanation of the Russo-Japanese war by video. It takes 2 hours if it rotates slowly. It is a valuable Museum of history people have marked where Admiral Togo was headed as Commander and kept Japan in the Meiji era is felt in the skin.

  • Had a blast walking through the Mikasa, feeling all the equipment and checking out the exhibits. Being able to interact with some parts of the ship was definitely worth the admission fee. Spent an hour and a bit here.
  • It is interesting indeed, but I wouldn't call it a museum battleship. At its current state, it's just a standard war museum shaped like a battleship. Appart from the capitan quaters, there isn't much /ship/ to be seen - no stuff like engine/boiler rooms or turrets interiors. Also, all parts restored after ww2 are of visibly low quality, with zero attention given to details. Main turrets restoration is an abdomination. However, overall, it does, look impressive from distance. Museum itself focuses on the pre ww2 naval warfare history of Japan Empire and is well made.
  • The tour of the ship is very similar to what is offered ship-tours in Hawaii. It starts out with a short video that gives decent background of the ship and its history. After the video you explore the ship. As you go there are helpful panels that give brief descriptions of what you see.
  • Great staff, 60 min long boat tour, well planned by the museum on the guidebooks. Last time I visited, I arrived 30 minutes before closing, but the good old man allowed me in, pointed out the shorter 30 mins tour for me and gave me a senior's discount since I won't have a full 30 mins left to explore the scene.
  • If you're a military naval history fan, and are not put off by light revisionism and SDF recruiting, then this is for you. Adults ¥600. Not disabled friendly. Toilets and vending machines on board.

Where to stay in Yokosuka

The city of Yokosuka has a decent set of accommodations close to its waterfront and naval bases. Primarily built with businesspeople, rather than international tourists, in mind, they tend to be fairly one-tone. Look along the waterfront going west from the main train station to see most of what's on offer, with the emphasis almost exclusively on modern business-style hotels with comfortable rooms, pools, and onsite restaurants.
