Yokosuka Research Park (YRP) is an area in Yokosuka City, Japan, where many of the wireless, mobile communications related companies have set up their research and development centers and joint testing facilities.

YRP was constructed during the 1990s near to NTT's Yokosuka Research & Development Center.


YRP is located in Hikari no Oka, Yokosuka City, about 90 minutes by train from central Tokyo. However, there are express through trains with significantly faster access. It is served by YRP Nobi Station on the Keikyu Kurihama Line, with direct services from Shinagawa in Tokyo.


  • July, 1987: The YRP Planning Group was established
  • March, 1994: The "Infrastructure Construction" Project was started
  • October, 1997: No. 1, No. 2 and Life Support Buildings were completed
