The park itself is a big hill full of lush vegetation. Apparently at the right time of year it is full of hydrangeas, but we didn't catch it at that time and it was nothing special. The true gem is at sea level, across the...More

This park has loads of different vantage points of Shimoda and the bay. It is great for both sunrise and sunset and is very quiet and relaxing.

Shimoda is an amazing and charming fishing town. Shimoda park is the perfect place for a late afternoon walk, just around sunset. Make sure to walk along the coast as well, to enjoy the beautiful sea view and small islands.
