Located just south of Tokyo, Miura Peninsula is where you'll find Hayama's beautiful natural landscapes, Misaki's tasty tuna dishes, and the prosperous naval base of Yokosuka. There's just no end to the amount of unique sights and sounds to be enjoyed here!

If you're planning for a trip to as many towns on the peninsula as possible, you can't go wrong with any one of Keikyu's discount tickets - of which there are three we especially recommend: the Hayama Excursion Ticket, Misaki Maguro Ticket, and Yokosuka Mankitsu Ticket.

Must-Visit Sightseeing Spots Accessible Using the Hayama Excursion Ticket

There are countless places suitable for a relaxing walk in Zushi/Hayama, but here are a few of our recommendations.

1) Morito Shrine

For leisurely sightseeing around the sea of Enoshima, we recommend boarding the "Enoshima/Yujiro Lighthouse Cruising" pleasure boat. The normal price for entry is 3,240 yen, but if you present your Hayama Excursion Ticket, the price goes down to 2,160 yen.
