Verny Park, Yokosuka

(170+ reviews on the web)
Scenic Walking Area Nature / Park
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. Use our Yokosuka travel itinerary maker to arrange your visit to Verny Park and other attractions in Yokosuka.

  • 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.
  • A very beautiful park where you can see various JMSDF/US NAVY ships. If you are a core military fan, you must pay a visit to this park.
  • Great views, quiet atmosphere.
