The Yokosuka Museum of art is located in Kanagawa Prefecture, Kannonzaki Park. It was opened to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Yokosuka. Before and after the war it served as a collection of pieces related to Yokosuka writers.
The museum is integrated with its surrounding environment, there is a mountain plaza that faces the forest, and a lawn that faces the nearby ocean. It’s a good spot for a short stay, as it has an open terrace restaurant as well as art books and free art magazines for you to enjoy, as well as paintings by Taniuchi Rokuro depicting postwar Japanese society (about 1300 paintings). As it is located in Kannonzaki Park the location is excellent, and it is a very clean and stylish building.
To get to the museum by train, take the Keihin line to Uraga Station (浦賀駅) . From there you can take a bus headed to Kannonzaki. By car, take the Yokohama-Yokosuka Road to Maborikaigan IC (馬堀海岸). Parking is available from 8:00 to 22:00. The first hour is 310 yen, and 150 yen every 30min after.
