Mikasa Pier is in close proximity to Mikasa Park, which is home to the battleship Mikasa, a significant vessel in Japanese naval history. The pier itself may have historical ties to the naval activities in the area, serving as a dock or a point for maritime operations, especially during the time when the battleship Mikasa was active.


But at the same time, Mikasa Pier is Ferry terminal for Sarushima Island.

We get on the 11:30 am Ferry to Sarushima Island, which takes about 10 minutes cruise on the sea.

11:40 AM

Sarushima Island (Monkey Island)

Sarushima Island is a unique and historically significant island located in Tokyo Bay. It is the only natural island in the bay and has a rich history coupled with natural beauty.

The name Sarushima, meaning "Monkey Island" in Japanese, comes from a legend that a god appeared on the island in the form of a monkey. The island has been known since ancient times and has various historical and mythical stories associated with it.

During the Meiji and pre-World War II Showa periods from 1868 till 1945, the island was fortified and used by the Imperial Japanese Navy. The remnants of these military fortifications can still be found on the island.

Despite its historical militarization, Sarushima remains a place of natural beauty. It's covered with lush greenery and is home to various species of birds and other wildlife.


We walk in the lush green forest and explore the remnants of the military fortifications such as barracks, gun batteries and tunnels.

02:00 PM

Mikasa Park

We take the 13:45 ferry back to Mikasa Park and take a look at inside of the battleship Mikasa.


Mikasa Park is a historical and cultural landmark in Yokosuka City, is renowned primarily for being the permanent berth of the pre-Dreadnought battleship, the Japanese battleship Mikasa, which holds great historical significance for Japan. The ship was the flagship of Admiral Togo Heihachiro during the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905), playing a pivotal role in the Battle of Tsushima. This battle was particularly notable as it marked the first time in modern history that an Asian power defeated a European power in a significant naval engagement.

Surrounding the battleship are well-maintained park grounds with walking paths, benches, and green spaces. It also contains various monuments and memorials, including the statue of Admiral Togo and the sailors who served with him.

Dobuita Street

We walk to the Dobuita Street passing through the gate of U.S. Naval Base.


Dobuita Street is a vibrant and culturally rich area known for its unique blend of Japanese and American influences. This lively street became especially well-known due to the presence of the US Navy base in Yokosuka.

Initially it was known for its bars, nightclubs, and entertainment catering to U.S. servicemen. It still retains signs of its past, but now offers a broader array of shops, eateries, and cultural experiences.

We keep walking from Dobuita Street to Verny Park.

Verney Park is a scenic and tranquil public park, known for its beautiful green spaces, waterfront views, and historical significance.

Kanagawa Tour Reviews

Awesome day around Mt Fuji

Macky took me to multiple places around Mt Fuji I would have never know about. Several great views of Mt Fuji from the various stops. He was very kind and informative. I can't imagine how I could have made the day any better!

Friendly, professional, knowledgeable, flexible, accommodating, and fun!

Our day with Macky was excellent. In every way, Macky delivered. We had a full itinerary planned, and even with a last minute request to change one of our stops from a bike ride to a winery visit, Macky was able to accommodate. If you are looking for a guide that will find a way to squeeze in all that you want to do within a short time frame without sacrificing the integrity of your trip, Macky is your guide. Prior to our tour, Macky sent us a detailed itinerary down to the hour (while also allowing for flexibility). He really listened to what we wanted to do and what we wanted to accomplish in one day and he made it all happen. Macky is a great tour guide with a wealth of knowledge about Japan who will work with your requests and make sure your day/tour is time extremely well-spent. Thank you, Macky!

Aubrey W.
