Perry Road, Shimoda

2.7
#1 of 12 in Historic Sites in Shimoda
Make time for a short walk on Perry Road, where you can retrace the footsteps of Matthew C. Perry and learn how Japan altered its foreign diplomacy in order to open its doors to the West. The quaint street follows a water canal, intersected by small bridges that connect the walking paths found on both sides. You can start your walk in the spot where Commander Perry arrived with his ships and demanded a trade agreement with Japan. Finish on the opposite side, in the hydrangea-filled park.
