Verny Park, Yokosuka

(4.1/5 based on 140+ 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.

  • If you're lucky self-defense forces and U.S. troops can watch both ships. I think the spot to symbolize the naval port of Yokosuka. Rose Festival will be held in verny Park in May. I think this season is the Park's most crowded by time.

  • JR Yokosuka station near by the Ocean Park. Located between the base of the United States Navy with a naval base the warships of both. So I usually don't base binoculars are recommended.

  • But of course fun to take in the Park more accessible to ships of the JMSDF ships American troops should be better. Especially right now is Japan's largest destroyer [none] can be seen to have. I think the other many attractions, such as some gun Casiopeia verny oguri Tadamasa statue and Battleship Memorial battleship nagato Monument Park.

  • 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.
