Shimoda is a favorite weekend getaway of my family that is close enought to drive from Tokyo. The beach was a little bit dirty in my opinion but most people go here to surft and explore the island.#wintergetaway
In 1854, a United States called Perry fired several "black ships" in a tie and made a few shots. He landed from Shimoda and signed the first unequal treaty with the Japanese shogunate. The island country opened its doors and began its strong country. road. I think of my "Great Qing Dynasty", basically the same beginning, but in the decades after that, it produced a completely different situation. I think that I was more "hehehe". After leaving the station from Izu Kyushuda Station, we walked for about 20 minutes to the Perry Monument. There are many shrines nearby, and there are few people in the rain, which is quite quiet. Narrow streets, old buildings, small rushes, drizzle, and a tasteful place are actually worth walking slowly, according to the Japanese style.
Shirahama beach is a sister beach of Waikiki beach of Honolulu Hawaii. A beautiful white sand beach. It has a nice promenade in some sort of green stone from the right of the beach near a shrine to the left near the Tsukumoto Ashiyu. It is right in “town” so there are a lot of activities around that area. Senjojiki sandstones and Sandambeki cliff are easy walks from the beach area. One of my best favourite and you can rent chair and umbrella. Plenty of food choice and car park at a fee nearby. Water is very clean and you can relax for at least a half day here. You can plan to leave 6pm to see sunset nearby.
