Verny Park, Yokosuka

4.0
#1 of 25 in Sightseeing in Yokosuka
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.

  • Season of the Sakura, and the spring and autumn rose is recommended. Put the ship anchored across the Gulf military, taking a picture of the flower. Too many benches in the Park was so relaxing.

  • This is a nice little park with a view along the waterfront and is named after the French engineer Verny who contributed to the construction of the Yokosuka Iron Works. It has a lovely rose garden (2,...  more »
  • It is a garden from the Yokosuka station. Statue of France has become the origin of the name, in the beautiful gardens of the foreign engineer verny commemorative Museum. You can also see, escorts from verny park anchored self-defense base in self-defense. Because it is a sight I see, is recommended.

  • 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.

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.
