Inspirock Rating:
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.

  • Busy high speed ships went from a sunny afternoon, had a long column to the boarding place. 1周 island itself is not so big, so if you only had 1 hour. I felt like a little adventure feel the history in the historic site, close to the city. Return high-speed ferry capacity over, there were occasional flights.

  • Because most people visiting the Monkey Island had a barbecue on the beach, near the ruins, such as the powder keg who weren't. And enters the tunnel and shade on hot days I visited on the brink is cool and the cool. Like a decadent atmosphere, try to come.

  • It becomes time sensation! Tokyo Bay like this however and was impressed. Room was made when the weather is nice. Feel the breeze of the sea, while in the historic site of the old Japan army was impressed. Built overlooking the boats the Uraga channel also is fun.
