Nice place to spend an hour (or two, if you want to eat something). It's a perfect place for slow-walking. The public toilet is a must-go. It's soooooo crazily clean! Tip::: Walk towards the end of the road and go up the steps and you...More

Super quaint, historical street running along a canal with just a few small shops, cafes and restaurants. Worth a visit to have an enjoyable stroll.

This is a very lovely small city all round. But the area around the old town is particularly charming with some lovely cafés dotted about. Weeping willows and jasmine fragrance abounds.

Line most of Shimoda Perry Road has seen much, much better days. If you are in Shimoda it is probably worth the time to walk up from the train station to see it, but for goodness sake to not spend the money to come down...More

Shimoda town unsettles me. It was eerily quiet and devoid of life at 5pm on a weekday. We chose to do a walk along Perry Road, supposedly the prettiest. It was pretty, a 2 minute stretch of quaint old houses with the iconic black and...More
