Fodor's Expert Review Shimoda Tokyu Hotel

5–12–1 Shimoda, Shimoda, Shizuoka-ken, 415-0025, Japan

Perched just above the bay, the Shimoda Tokyu has impressive views of the Pacific from one side (where rooms cost about 10% more) and mountains from the other. Unlike at most Japanese resort hotels, the lobby here is full of character and warmth, with an airy layout and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the bay. Prices are significantly higher in midsummer.

PROS

  • nice views of the ocean
  • easy access to Shimoda Station and sights
  • spacious guest rooms

CONS

  • restaurants are expensive for Tokyo standards
  • rooms are a bit dated
  • service can be hit or miss
