Explore brick-lined tunnels, magazines, and ruins of a navy battery at Sarushima Island (Monkey Island), the only natural island in Tokyo Bay. You can take a hike in the island’s tranquil woods surrounded by sea, but unfortunately you wont' see any monkeys on the island. Reach the island by taking a 10-minute ferry ride, during which you can spot some warships and enjoy great views of Yokosuka and Yokohama. You can rent a barbecue set and cook on a small beach, but you'll need to bring your own food or fish for it yourself. Make sure you bring drinking water with you.

  • Short ferry ride over and it was mostly empty when we got here since the season is almost over. In couple days actually. Tomorrow the 19th there will be a special and a few voice actors will visit...  more »
  • The island is accessible by boat from a contracted company. They do not speak a lot of English but money sure does. The fare is affordable and you can bring your own food and beach supplies. My kids.....  more »
