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.

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.
