Yokosuka has long played a part in Japan's naval history. Commodore Matthew Perry's landing in the area in the 1850s initiated the country's modernization, and today it is the site of a major naval facility used by the United States and Japanese forces.
The fastest way to reach Yokosuka is to take the Keikyu Line train into Yokosuka-Chuo (?????) station.
If traveling directly to Yokosuka from Narita Airport, you can take the Narita Express to Yokohama and switch to the Keikyu Line (2 hours; ¥3930 ¥3310 JR fare + ¥620 Keikyu fare). With the Japan Rail Pass it costs only ¥620 for the Keikyu line.
From Haneda Airport, take the Keikyu line and change trains at Keikyu-Kamata station (50 minutes; ¥790).
The fastest Keikyu trains make the run to Yokosuka-Chuo in 43 minutes from Shinagawa station (¥620). Many trains from the Toei Asakusa subway line continue on to the Keikyu Line. The ride takes about one hour from Nihombashi (???) station (¥900).
You can also take the slower JR Yokosuka Line on the lower level of Tokyo Station. Take any train bound for Yokosuka or Kurihama (75 minutes; ¥1050; no charge with Japan Rail Pass).
Yokosuka claims to be the place of origin of the quintessentially Japanese dish curry rice, and it seems everywhere you turn there's a sign for "Navy curry" (?????). It's not idle boasting, though, as the dish is believed to have been introduced in the late 19th century by British sailors who regularly ate the easily-preserved meal.
The Hotel New Yokosuka offers the best accommocations in the city of Yokosuka. It has easy access (and free transportation) to the Naval Base and their friendly staff will ensure your stay is memorable.
