4.1
#2 of 30 in Parks in Yokosuka
Explore brick-lined tunnels, magazines, and ruins of a navy battery at Sarushima Island (Monkey Island), the only natural island in Tokyo Bay. You can take a hike in the island’s tranquil woods surrounded by sea, but unfortunately you wont' see any monkeys on the island. Reach the island by taking a 10-minute ferry ride, during which you can spot some warships and enjoy great views of Yokosuka and Yokohama. You can rent a barbecue set and cook on a small beach, but you'll need to bring your own food or fish for it yourself. Make sure you bring drinking water with you.

  • If you take a picture, the way the light enters in the morning might be beautiful. I went there in the evening, so the night view of Yokosuka from the ferry on the way back was quite beautiful.

  • I visited Yokosuka for the first time. From Mikasa Park, it is a round trip from 1600-, and the stay time is about one hour, and it is possible to go around the island, and the view is good. There are also historic buildings. A boat trip of about 10 minutes one way.

  • The best natural island near Tokyo with a history of the wartime japan
  • Amazing bbq time with family and colleagues. Book online the whole bbq set, chair etc. Buy your meat at Hanamasa and party out here. Wander around the island to explore the remains of World War 2.
