#2 of 24 in Parks in Yokosuka
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 went in June. Did the world really like Ghibli. In comfortable shoes, and walk the distance and surprising places, sometimes steep road is bad because I've had the. Get down from the ferry can be hands-free BBQ at the beach, so it is recommended.

    I went to the barbecue on the day of the sea. Last day of the 3-day weekend. Sandy is not the population density is badly so much noise and have good feel. And I want to swim aggressively, and sea water was full of people swim in beautiful than imagined, but in the city's did not. Gone fishing bathing feeling to water sports, not so hot about it. Wave is so not so shallow, so children are fun! Hiking around the island is very good. It was in the sky world. Longed to be a condition of the MOSS I like ruins. Was also fishing. Two in 40 minutes, was able to catch small fish ^ ^ feel easy enough summer to enjoy on a trip. You want to go again.

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.
