Perry Road, Shimoda
(3/5 based on 200 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.

  • This was part of bus tour of Shimoda we took. Because it was for Japanese and there was only one sign in English, it would be helpful to get/read up on it before going for the historical significance. 
  • In this very old area of Shimoda is good place to take pics and for couples it's romantic and unique, with little shop and restaurant:) 
  • This is not still walked around. Atmosphere nice and nifty. It is now is good, but do not know whether or not Perry walked past big trail.
