Verny Park, Yokosuka

4.0
#2 of 24 in Parks in Yokosuka
Watch docked warships at the site of the first modern Japanese arsenal at Verny Park, a seaside area covered with roses, carrying the name of its French designer, Léonce Verny. Yokosuka US Navy base and a Japanese Navy area across the bay provide a good opportunity to photograph docking destroyers, moored submarines, and huge cargo supply ships. The park abounds with many varieties of roses, meticulously labeled so you can remember which one you liked most. Take a relaxing stroll and observe locals walking their dogs, then pop into the small museum, which gives a good insight in the history of the area and its great industrial heritage.

  • 2017-joined the countdown event to the year 2018. Would figure lights are made to escort and only this day. Enjoy organised in stalls and live outdoors, go early. Depending on the place where you see that Tokyo would enjoy people who hate crowds for 混manai without stress.

  • Low-season discounts are free Park. However, the whole wide world park overlooking the various warship which is so unlikely, so is recommended to the authorities. Unfortunately the track laid, however, was long ago had been removed.

  • I could see Japanese defense force submarines and ships from this park. If you are very keen on it, you can pay for an additional boat tour to go closer to ships and see more, but if you are on a budg...  more »

  • A quiet and beautiful park. I'm sure it's even more beautiful in the spring when flowers are blooming, as the park is mostly rose bushes with few tress. Very much a walk through type of park with views of the harbour. There are toilet facilities, a French cafe and vending machines in the park but it's probably better to go to nearby Aeon Mall for a bite to eat.
  • Very relaxing waterfront boardwalk with a Rose garden. The Cherry Blossom is very beautiful here too.
  • Awesome view, has playground for the little kids. Right next to Starbucks, the Sakura are amazing, well manicured.
  • With a beautiful view of the ocean and both the Japanese and American naval bases as well as quite the impressive garden this park offers something for everyone.
  • Quaint little park by the seaside, with a French flower garden in the middle. Nothing especially standout - unless you are naval or WWII aficionado, in which case there is a row of memorials to the IJN and especially battleships Yamashiro and Nagato; a museum about the park's namesake at the far western end; and an absolutely spectacular view of both the JMSDF and US Fleet Activites bases. Absolutely free.

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.
