Sarushima Island (Monkey Island), Yokosuka

(4.2/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • Uninhabited island monkey's, minute small ferry jetty Mikasa in Yokosuka. There are some remnants of the past as a military fortress. Kitoo, brick manufacturing tunnel marks on the history trail from overwhelming. History people should come and carry foot. Sightseeing can be in about an hour.

  • Island accessible by boat in Yokosuka Mikasa Park aside from being where it is. Arrived quickly and has become a tourist destination for casual. I wouldn't be in a lot of people crowded in the summer.

  • This time in okunikko application has done is sparse okunikko tour operators at no. Conversely does the volunteer Bon voyage of Monkey Island Guide I the information promptly and explained as well, was very informative about Monkey Island. You can also become models of Laputa, etc. Went on a tour, so I usually gave us no ammunition and fortified. I think next time I see more slowly over time, want to go to.
