Good times, U.S. Navy base good tourist sight
Sailors tend to get into trouble in the Honcho District
In a nutshell
If you want to see japan dont visit Yokosuka
Tipping is considered rude in Japan and is not required. Often times, unless you ask if service is included in the meal, it is. The wait staff is paid appropriately and they do not rely on tips. Tips are even considered a slap in the face, if you will. Do not tip in Japan!!!!!

Anyone that is living in or visiting Yokosuka should do what they can to avoid going out the night a carrier comes into port. Imagine 3,000 sailors that have been cramped on a large boat for a couple months being released into town. Only 1% of these servicemen will get into any trouble, but that's all it takes to ruin your night out.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: As in most port cities in Japan, rain comes hard and heavy with little warning. If you're here for a while invest in a decent umbrella as it can be VERY breezy at times. You will end up paying more by buying the cheap umbrellas that keep breaking than you would a decent one to start out with.

When we talk about onsen we'll think of Hakone. I was staying around Kurihama and it takes a few hours of train ride to reach Hakone. I was very lazy to travel so far just to soak in the onsen and then travel back. I was surprised when I found out that there is an onsen in Yokosuka city and not many locals know about the existence of this onsen too.
You can either take a bus from JR Kinugasa station or Keikyu Yokosuka Chuo station to reach the onsen. It is only a few bus stops away from both the train station. The bus stops at Sano Yong-Cho-Mei and you walk about 5 mins from the bus stop to the onsen. Nobori-gumo has both indoor and outdoor onsen and they have seperate onsens for male and female only.
The entrance fee is 1000yen(adult) and the operating hours is from 9am to 12.00am (last entry is before 11.00pm). If you didn't bring any towel, they have towel rental for 100yen/pc. They provide shampoo, hair conditioner, soap and hair dryer.
Please go to my travel page http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/tt/9f8f7/#TL to see more details on how to get there.
