Verny Park, Yokosuka

4.0
#1 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.

    In the JMSDF guided missile defense destroyer [Izu even] that have ports, visited the port of Yokosuka. Yokohama Yokosuka road to discover the kyokan from the car window while driving. City to could not enter the kyokan want to see up close and find a way to get it. You could admit the kyokan "verny Park" mast reluctantly parked cars in the distance, seen in the distance find the direction to rely on.

    Yokosuka station right by the Ocean Park, Maine's rose garden. You can see the colorful flowers and visiting the rose season. You can watch the ships of the maritime self-defense forces and U.S. forces in Japan. Antarctic research ship that anchored the news.

    It is a very nice Park. Within the grounds is a lot different kinds of roses. And sea front promenade, but it is buying coffee at a Starbucks near the walk, is just great. There are many benches is a place I will go out for a walk can also break, close to home.

    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.

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.
