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.

  • I visited that had been introduced on TV and was curious. Take a boat from Mikasa Park, arrived in about 10 minutes. On the island and the nature of wartime buildings, tunnels, and the breakfast in the exploration mood. Is the place you want to stroll slowly, in good weather.

  • Is an island scarred Japan military base during World War II. Mikasa Park rises about 10 minutes, the island by boat and masonry and the passageways and tunnels, remnants, and a mysterious space. And is saying the base site is also in place and ensured safety, family, children, women and even the problem. If you just round around watching the sea about an hour, and a sunny area, the Weitzer. It is a nice place it is understandable, that can be used in the location. I think it's worth going once. We recommend it!
