Shimoda Yamatokan” looks out over the sea from the white sand beach. Savor two types of kaiseki cuisine: charcoal-grilled seafood and traditional seafood dishes.

This time, I would like to introduce “Shimoda Yamatokan” from Shimoda City, Shizuoka Prefecture.

It is a hot spring inn standing in front of the beach where you can enjoy the view of the ocean.

The location, charm, rooms, and cuisine are described in this article, so please refer to it for your reference.

The hotel “Shimoda Yamato-kan” is a place where you can enjoy the spectacular scenery with the sound of the waves of the beach coming and going in the background music.

All rooms at the Izu Shimoda Onsen have ocean views, and the open-air baths offer a sight worthy of the spectacular scenery.

By train, it takes about 2 hours and 45 minutes from Tokyo Station to Shimoda Station by JR Express Odoriko.

From the private outdoor hot spring bath “SPA VILLA”, which is available by reservation only, you will be able to see a new kind of scenery that will make you feel as if you are bathing in the beach.

The charm of Shimoda Yamatokan

This is the first time I’ve been to a hot spring in Japan.

The Japanese style hot spring “Mahoroba” is a large bathhouse where you can visit the “Senraku” indoor bath, the “Kobu” Izu stone bath, and the “Kirara” mountaintop outdoor bath.

If you look out the large windows, you can see a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean, a sight that will refresh your body and soul.

Rooms at Shimoda Yamato-kan
