One place after the other, but OK. Mostly small Japanese tourist shops and restaurants. Been there, go a T shirt. Nothing to write home about. Expensive.

I visited the street during my lunch break. It looks like the place can be interesting when more shops and the bars are open.

We went in the middle of the day and most stores were closed. Seems to be a mixture of eateries and shops selling military and souvenir clothes. Much smaller area than imagined.

Sailors have been gathering here for decades. My first trip was in '00. Not much has changed since then. The shops are open until the nightlife starts. Pretty much always something interesting to find/do

This is the main street where sailors go off the Navy Base in Yokosuka. It is loaded with bars, a few eating establishments (mostly what I'd call pub grub) and a few shopping places.
