Mikasa Park, Yokosuka
(4.2/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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. With our online itinerary creator, Yokosuka attractions like Mikasa Park can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • You can see the Yokosuka US Army, Pacific in the back area. Mikasa also exhibited as a glimpse of that time. People interested in battleships, such as dining room, Cannon was, of course, very excited boys. We raised so Yokosuka port Mackey to have lunch and eat in the park overlooking the sea.

  • To be fair, I didn't tour the ship but it's just an open air park. There are some gardens and a playground for the kids. They do have a amphitheater for festivals and fountains but it's not all that e...  more »
  • The Mikasa is no world war ship, but by 1902. The ship was made in the agreements of the Washington fleet out of service and set in concrete, so that of from the parties was recognized as a museum ship and does not fall in the tonnage that is related to Japan. After the 2nd World War the ship was completely dismantled, eradicated 10 years and was rebuilt then, so that all were fake are. The views of the last existing pre Dreadnought are yet fabulous, I'm 25% of my entire vacation photos on this ship.

  • There's a little playground here with slides and monkey bars. Then there's the Bellagio of Yokosuka water fountain show once in a while. It sprays along with music for about 15m. Neat to see at least once. Can't speak for the male latrines, but the female ones by the fountain are the squat kind. If you like toilets, then take the ship tour and use the toilets with heated seats. Aaahhhh. The ship tour was 600Y for an adult and the little kids are free. There seems to be an option to pay extra for a guided tour. Otherwise follow the given map or arrows around the ship. There are also buttons for Japanese or English at some of the exhibits that tell you what you're looking at. Bring 100Y if you want to use the binoculars. There's also a commemorative coin machine down below for 500Y. You choose the coin and then what you want engraved on to it.
  • Beautiful small harbour side park in Yokosuka with access to an old Japanese warship. Great water features too for the kids to enjoy.
  • Not crowded and with plenty of space to lie down on the grass. Very nice to spend a free time with family and friends. A dancing water fountain with music playing can be seen on time schedule and most of all Yokosuka Port Market is just a few meters away.
  • Nice park with occasional festivals close and convenient to base.
  • Beautiful fountains,views and near the port market for icecream after.
