Shimoda's Coastline, Izu Pensinsula

Discovering some of Japan's finest beaches

Shimoda (下田市) is a city and port in Shizuoka, located at the southern tip of the Izu peninsula about 80 miles southwest of Tokyo. It is perfect for a nice weekend break away from Tokyo. Shimoda's location, between the Amagi Mountains to the north, and the warm Kuroshio Current to the south, gives the city a sub-tropical climate. Shimoda is famous for its hot springs and beautiful beaches.
