Perry Road, Shimoda

(2.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is paved until ryosen-ji Temple along the River from the Shimoda Park at ryosen-ji temple shrine and gas lamps. It was planted willows along the River, mellow and relaxed atmosphere. That is named Commodore Perry came, and about 300 men marched on this road so. To wander around side to the Western-style buildings and old houses, cafes and restaurants are also fun. Shop cheaply Lou was opened late in life that became a museum now. Shops selling souvenirs and knick-knacks too short and it is fun.
