Yokosuka, an important coastal community for centuries located at the end of the Bay of Tokyo and Yokohama, is now a huge Japanese and American naval base.
Yokosuka is a 1-hour direct train ride from Tokyo and 30 minutes from Yokohama.
The JR Yokosuka and Keikyu lines run from Shinagawa to Yokosuka, and the JR Shonan Shinjuku line connects the naval base with Shinjuku and Shibuya. All trips take about 1 hour. The JR station is a short walk from the center of Yokosuka, while the one on the Keikyu line is much more central.
