Shimoda Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 10 photos
Shimoda (population of 25,054) is located at the southern tip of the Izu peninsula about 60 miles (97 km) southwest of Tokyo. Shimoda. Shimoda Japan.
In the 1850s, Japan started to end its national seclusion policy established by Tokugawa Shougun. Shimoda was the main port for political exchange and trade with foreign countries.
Its a small cozy town and one cannot imagine that this city served as the main port of trade with foreign countries. There are several historical monuments and temples which served as centers of conferences or residents of foreign diplomats (e. USA Ambassador Harris).
