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.

  • Mikasa destroyed Baltic fleet at the battle of the Japan Sea are restore development as a Hall of Fame, are on display. Inside the Museum on the Mikasa, slowly if you want to see about an hour is required. Guided tours were organized on a regular basis. Also I think better and taken a discount in advance may have been transferred to civil.

  • A Memorial ship of the Russo-Japanese war is still important. Seems to be had in public administration after World War II, the ship the waste crisis. I think now was left. You can learn the world situation of the time.

  • 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.
