Fodor's Expert Review Shimoda Prince Hotel

1547–1 Shirahama, Shimoda, Shizuoka-ken, 415-8525, Japan

At this modern V-shape resort hotel that faces the Pacific, the decor is more functional than aesthetic, but a white-sand beach is just steps away, and there's a panoramic view of the ocean from the picture windows in the dining room. The Prince is just outside Shimoda, 10 minutes by taxi from the station.
