Sarushima

Literally translating to Monkey Island, Sarushima is accessible via a short 10 minute ferry ride from Mikasa Pier. There are numerous ways to enjoy the island, whether it's taking a guided tour, appreciating nature, relaxing on the beach, or engaging in a spot of fishing – the waters surrounding Sarushima are renowned for being crystal clear. The island is uninhabited, but there is a restaurant called Ocean's Kitchen where you can grab a bite to eat. The menu offerings include things like Yokosuka navy curry, teriyaki chicken, ramen, and potato wedges. For the sweet-tooths, try the Sarushima pudding which is made with locally-sourced milk and eggs. Do note that ferry departure times differ from the summer schedule (set from March 1 until October 31) compared to the winter schedule (November 1 until February 28).
