Visiting the Yokosuka R&D Center
The Yokosuka R&D Center has a hillside location in the center of the Miura Peninsula, overlooking the ocean on three sides. It faces Tokyo Bay to the east, where passenger ships and tankers can be seen making their way slowly up and down the Uraga waterway. To the west, the Center faces Sagami Bay, where clear winter days offer exquisite views of Mt. Fuji across the Bay, bathed in the light of the setting sun.
