On a trip to Shimoda, a small town nestled on the tip of the Izu peninsula, you can take advantage of the scenic sandy beaches and soak in the laid-back atmosphere. Commodore Matthew Perry arrived in Shimoda's port in 1853, ending the country's isolation from the rest of the world. A number of museums and monuments commemorate the historic event, and sightseeing in Shimoda can also include several shrines, temples, onsens, and verdant parks known for colorful hydrangeas. Take stress off the schedule by using our Japan trip site.
