The weather didn't cooperate with our beach trip, so we were looking for a place to kill some time. Perry Road is a cute option for that! It's in the small little town of Shimoda and stretches maybe 400 meters total. Little shops line the...More

This was part of bus tour of Shimoda we took. Because it was for Japanese and there was only one sign in English, it would be helpful to get/read up on it before going for the historical significance.
