If you are looking for white sand beaches, crystal blue waters and hot springs where you can relax and unwind, then Shimoda (Shizuoka Prefecture) is the place for you. Situated a few hours from Tokyo in the south of the Izu peninsula, it’s the perfect place for a short break.
The historical importance of Shimoda is visible all over town as the port where Commodore Perry landed his ‘black ships’ from the US, and ended Japan’s international isolation.
