Attraction Of Sarushima Island

A Desert Island Like A World Of 'Laputa'

Located at Yokosuka, Sarushima Island is a desert island, and the biggest and only site of fort in Tokyo Bay. There're battery sites and long tunnels built by red bricks. Fantastic scenery of lush nature covering the desert place is like a world of 'Laputa' in a Ghibli Movie 'Castle In The Sky'.
Almost all of the island is used as Sarushima Park now, and you can enjoy fishing, BBQ, sea bathing and so on. Access: Firstly, you need to go to Mikasa Pier. It's too far to walk from JR Yokosuka Station, but from Keikyu Yokosuka Chuou Station to the pier is only 15 min walk. Then, 10min by ferry to from Mikasa Pier to Sarushima, though there's only one ferry in one hour. I could see around the island in one hour!
