Yokosuka, Japan – Kanagawa Prefecture Pt.5

It’s Downtown Yokosuka!

Downtown 1
A quick snap as I cross the street…

Yokosuka is a port city that sits in the Tokyo bay but is actually a ways south of Tokyo. Yokosuka is also host to a US Navy base and their civilian families. While most Americans, enlisted and civilian, live on the base or close to it, everyone ventures off to explore the downtown area. If you’re feeling a little homesick and want to see more people who look like you (a foreigner) go downtown.

Downtown 2
The other way, after crossing the street, again.

We’ve given directions or suggestions a few times to fellow travelers looking to get the inside scoop on local eats or… the mall.

It’s awesome.

Just don’t do anything you wouldn’t do at home. Seems like common sense but unfortunately I’ve seen signs, in english, that read, “No Enlisted Men” in certain places. Personally, it’s embarrassing. I have two brothers who were enlisted sailors, so I know what goes on…

Oh well, let’s see what I can dig up for next week…
