Yokosuka

Visit the Earthquake Awareness and Preparation Center, located near Yokosuka City Hall off Highway 16. Visitors must sit through a Japanese language video presentation, but then can experience a strong earthquake in controlled surroundings, learn how to avoid injury, put out fires, and escape a smoky building. Visitors receive an English-language mock newspaper page outlining how their quick actions saved lives.

Attend a minor-league baseball game in the summer or fall. The Shonan Searex play at Yokosuka Stadium, the ticket cost is ¥1000. The stadium is a 10 minute walk from Oppama Station on the Keikyu line.
