We went during a US holiday so that there would be fewer people out there. We packed a lunch and hiked around and ate our lunch our there. It was very peacefully. Looking back, we should have done our hiking, then BBQ on the beach there to relax. It is worth the $12 ferry ride out there.

The fun begins with the ferry ride. Very crowded during the summer but that's just part of the experience. The beach is where the barbequeing happens. It can get very hot, so bring your umbrellas/canopies. Take a hike up the mountain to discover the forts, mysterious paths, lush greenery, and view of Yokohama.

This is a nice place to visit on a hot day. With the beach, the canopy trees on the hills, and the tourist center, there are ways of keeping cool. There is a boat ride to the island that takes all of 10 minutes and you get a nice view of Yokosuka from the bay. The beach is like a giant Japanese beach party with BBQ, beer and hardly clothed natives. The only bad part is the very crowded beach otherwise I would have given it a 5 star. Oh, and watch out for the jelly fish! The fee is 1200 yen for the round trip ride
