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.

  • 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.

  • Keikyu Yokosuka Chuo station is in a 15-minute walk from arrival departure sashima line. From there we get to 10-minute cruise to the island's Pier. Unfortunately the wind was strong on pretty shaky ship. It did not feel the danger, but the thrill is 10 minutes. Island is an uninhabited island, trail is maintained and very easy to walk to stairs, walk up and down. Round the island at about 1 hour? It is a Ministry of Yokosuka city, I don't think about the natural environment is good, beautiful green trees and very nice. Besides the ruins was made in the Meiji era, tunnel or fortress, and feel the history. Near the pier shop and takeaway kitchens, too, good food is not open weekends only 11 months later, so come during the week may be.
