Verny Park, Yokosuka
(4.1/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.
  • Nice views with a history worth exploring.
  • Pretty park to walkthrough or to sit and relax. Vending machines are available to buy drinks. Plenty of flowers to look at.
  • Nice, clean little park with a nice view of the base.
