Sarushima Island (Monkey Island), Yokosuka
(4.2/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Explore brick-lined tunnels, magazines, and ruins of a navy battery at Sarushima Island (Monkey Island), the only natural island in Tokyo Bay. You can take a hike in the island’s tranquil woods surrounded by sea, but unfortunately you wont' see any monkeys on the island. Reach the island by taking a 10-minute ferry ride, during which you can spot some warships and enjoy great views of Yokosuka and Yokohama. You can rent a barbecue set and cook on a small beach, but you'll need to bring your own food or fish for it yourself. Make sure you bring drinking water with you. Work out when and for how long to visit Sarushima Island (Monkey Island) and other Yokosuka attractions using our handy Yokosuka vacation generator.

  • Looks like a location somewhere. It is as if kitoo between the stone walls on both sides with MOSS and wood road and it came from another world. This made by humans and is totally awesome. Appearing in some places brick barracks and ammunition. And making an elaborate tunnel. Is a castle in the sky when walking through the tunnel? With the illusion. Or rather nostalgic, fantasic? is a mysterious space. It is a good place to visit once and. And there is also the base of the shocker. Lol

  • Yearning in the ruins, I went to the ruins-like atmosphere of Monkey Island. However, in good condition, there are a lot of tourists for sightseeing, even safety. In a mystical atmosphere is good.
