Mikasa Park, Yokosuka

3.5
#3 of 24 in Parks in Yokosuka
Head down to Mikasa Park, a waterfront park rich with numerous sites related to the country's maritime heritage. With the U.S. naval base and harbor located right beside it, the park also houses a decommissioned battleship, now functioning as a naval museum. Elsewhere, a ferry terminal runs trips to an island offshore, and a dominant, strikingly designed arch stands as a symbol of peace and unity. In addition to the cultural highlights here, there's also plenty of space for the more traditional park features, such as grass, trees, and flowers.

  • In the Japan Sea Seafood served as the flagship of the IJN combined fleet's "Mikasa". Behind the statue was Fleet Admiral Togo Heihachiro's "Mikasa" brave and can be taken in a really good camera angle. Do you know there are biographies of the great suffering to come here in Yokosuka, Mikasa was very active in the Russo-Japanese war? Mikasa, and returning to Sasebo port after the conclusion of the Russo-Japanese war, then caused a large explosion and burst into flames, have foundered. Raised from the seabed, forest, development and success again in the first world war also would depend on Washington arms control treaty. But voice prompts you to save from the Japan national large and fasten the brave as a Memorial today. I felt that appeals to people and leave some scars, are all not know perfectly decorated maintenance during the Hall of Fame was suffering from physical, to keep it is more real than watching a video of the submarine force. I think from Mikasa Pier across to Monkey Island, or left ruined fortresses during World War II and an ammunition, this area is in the place of education in the great war to teach their children.

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.
