I went here years ago. Within walking distance from the Navy Base. Wonderful View and history. Be prepared to see some Japanese style. Great place for pictures. Bathrooms are available and food stands. Great for a stroll or a job.

An historic Japanese Naval site, for a small fee you can tour one of the old Japanese battleships here. A beautiful park that overlooks Monkey Island. Great day for the kids and family. Definitely a photo-worthy site so bring your disposables/cameras. A therapeutic day on the waterfront.

A close walk from Yokosuka Chuo station. The battleship is a must see and provides a great view of the bay. Plenty of food stalls around the area and during festivals.

This was one of my first foray's in Japan. It is in walking distance of The Naval Base and New Yokosuka. It is a fascinating piece of Japanese Naval history. A good value at only 300 yen. Probably great for kids as there is lots of climbing and things to touch. The surrounding park is also a nice area to... More

This is a nice place for a stroll but there is not too much to do in this area. The scenery is good with a nice pond and water views but its a small area that gets busy at times. The japans ship Mikasa is on display in the park area.

It is both beautiful and historic place! Located near the water the park has won dermal fountains and benches. The park also has a play ground for younger kids as well as interesting activities for teens. There is also a military ship you can tour while there!

To be fair, I didn't tour the ship but it's just an open air park. There are some gardens and a playground for the kids. They do have a amphitheater for festivals and fountains but it's not all that exciting.

Mikasa Park is located on the waterfront across from the U.S. Naval Base. Numerous fountains, waterfalls and streams result in a leisurely and spacious retreat from the busy city. The Japanese light cruiser IMS MIkasa and a statue to Admiral Togo, victor in the 1904 Russo-Japanese War, are near the main entrance. Beyond these are the waterfalls and a large... More

Not much to it. Admiral Togos ship if you are a history buff. Not English friendly. Good views of the channel on nice weather days.
