Port of Shimoda(area:CHUBU/SHIZUOKA)

Summer Winter

The Port of Shimoda harbors a compelling history: Commodore Matthew C. Perry of the US Navy’s East India Squadron landed here in 1854, leading to Shimoda’s status as the first Japanese port completely open to foreign trade and heralding the end of Japan’s two-hundred-year-long sakoku (closed country) policy. In addition to immersing themselves in the rich history of the area, visitors to Shimoda can unwind with leisure and shopping at Madogahama Kaiyu Park, located within the port grounds, as well as the nearby Shimoda Minato plaza.
