If you are on or around Yokosuka Naval Base and are looking for a nice park to take in the pleasant sea breeze, then head to Yokosuka Umikaze Park.

The spacious seaside park offers gorgeous panoramic views of the Tokyo gulf dotted with vessels and Sarushima Island.

Here you can enjoy nice walks, fishing, sports activities and barbecues. Head to the park for wallball, mountain biking, skateboarding and more. There’s even a sledding hill for the kids.

The park is also home to a bit of military history with a brick gun battery used by the Japanese military until the end of World War II. It is preserved for display.

Umikaze Park has a large parking lot and many activities that will have you coming back many times throughout the year.
