4.2
#2 of 24 in Parks in Yokosuka
Island Nature / Park
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.

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.
