Create an itinerary including Mikasa Park
Head down to Mikasa Park, a waterfront park rich with numerous sites related to the country's maritime heritage. With the U.S. naval base and harbor located right beside it, the park also houses a decommissioned battleship, now functioning as a naval museum. Elsewhere, a ferry terminal runs trips to an island offshore, and a dominant, strikingly designed arch stands as a symbol of peace and unity. In addition to the cultural highlights here, there's also plenty of space for the more traditional park features, such as grass, trees, and flowers.

  • Great place to run and play on a sunny day. Beautiful park, explore the ship, burn off energy, enjoy the waterfront.

  • We heard great things about the water and light show at Mikasa park, but every night for 3 days it was closed! No notice to the public either. Very saddening.

  • Its a special feeling to be able to see the last of a kind, and that was exactly what I felt seeing the memorial ship. This pre-dreadnought is carefully cared for with knowledgeable curators. A recommended visit for history buffs and lovers of naval vessels. A great experience if you don't mind a bit of revisionist history here and there.
  • It's a lovely park, can't wait to picnic here and for the cherry blossoms. The museum costs $6 for adults and is discounted for children. It is brimming with interesting stories and history. Most of the exhibits feature both japanese and English translations and it's phenomenal.
