Shimoda Tokyu Hotel
Overlooking the indigo waters of Oura Bay, this hilltop getaway is surrounded by lush gardens and greenery on the southeast end of Japan’s scenic Izu Peninsula. The island-like area is known for its white-sand beaches and natural hot springs, and your stay at Shimoda Tokyu Hotel places you steps from both of the Peninsula’s iconic features (in fact, an outdoor bath sits just above the beach at the foot of the hill). From panoramic ocean-and-mountain views to the lounger-lined outdoor pool and on-site event space, a serene escape awaits at Shimoda Tokyu Hotel.

From all-day dining to Japanese favorites, Shimoda Tokyu Hotel is home to two on-site restaurants and a lounge.
Phoenix: Swing by the hotel’s signature restaurant, Phoenix, for all-day Western dining.
Hamayu: The hotel’s hotspot for Japanese-style cuisine. Hamayu is only open for dinner.
Lounge: Head to the Lounge for light fare and cocktails.
Shirahama Beach: One of Japan’s most famous beaches, clear blue waters meet soft white sand at this crescent-shaped seashore. The beach has protected swimming areas, renowned surf, and nightly fireworks during the summer season.
Shimoda Park: This wooded park adjacent to the city center is home to an incredible hydrangea garden and dazzling city, mountain, and harbor views. After exploring the pink, blue, and purple hydrangeas (the park hosts the iconic Shimoda Hydrangea Festival), stroll by historic monuments and stop by the far end of the park for a beautiful view of the peninsula.
Shimoda Aquarium: This floating aquarium (the structure is actually in the bay) is home to dolphins, sea lions, penguins, turtles, and more. While the dolphin and sea lion shows draw rave reviews, we loved watching the fish and stingrays swarm to food during feeding sessions.
Shimoda Tokyu Hotel
Shimoda Tokyu Hotel is located on the southeast end of Izu Peninsula, just a 2.5 hour train ride south from Tokyo. The hotel overlooks the blue waters of Oura Bay on a quiet, seaside hill. Known for its hot springs and white-sand beaches, you’ll be steps from both at this private paradise.
