yokosuka Travel Guide :

Yokosuka

Understand

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.

Yokosuka

Get in

The fastest way to reach Yokosuka is to take the Keikyu Line train into Yokosuka-Chuo (?????) station.

Yokosuka

By air

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).

Yokosuka

By train

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).

Get around

Yokosuka

See

  • Travelers won't be able to see much of Yokosuka Naval Base, headquarters of the U.S. Navy's Seventh Fleet, but sailors based there are a common sight around the city, and certainly add to its atmosphere.
  • The Battleship Mikasa (????) was Admiral Togo's flagship in the Russo-Japanese war (1904-1905), and in the Battle of Tsushima it led to the annihilation of Russian forces.
  • The Perry Landing Park (?????????) marks the place where the infamous "black ships" landed, forcing the Tokugawa Shogunate to accede to the opening up of Japan to international trade. The park is located in Kurihama (???), a few stops away on the Keikyu Line.
  • Yokosuka Research Park, 3-4 Hikari-no-Oka (shuttle bus from Keikyu's YRP Nobi station), 1 (http://www.yrp.co.jp/en/). Not exactly a tourist attraction, this vast research complex is devoted to telecommunications in all shapes and sizes. You won't be able to see much if you show up unannounced, but symposia and meetings are held here regularly and usually include guided tours with companies showing off their latest and greatest.

Yokosuka

Eat

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.
