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.

Much of Shimoda is basic Japanese streets but Perry Road takes you back to a more scenic age. Quaint little houses, bridges over the small river, beautiful flowers and a peaceful aura. We visited here with our son and his Japanese wife taking in the serenity. We stopped for shaved ice, flavoured with fruit syrup and then topped with either... More

This is a nicely built road and has a few shops on both sides. Its a nice walk and gives a feel good factor due to its different environment from the other buildings around the area. The Shimoda flower garden and harbor is nearby Perry road. So you can plan your itinerary accordingly if you are visiting these places too.

A flat quite walk with lots to see. Quant houses and fantastic gardens, just before the hydrangea season. At one end is the memorial for peace between the USA and Japanese.

We went through Perry Road toward Shimoda Park. It's not that long, quite picturesque. Little shops to be explored and side lanes that hider other little shops. Shimoda has not that much, so spend some time here.

Lots of little shops along the walk with a beautiful temple at the end. Locals are friendly, and the town has a very relaxed feel to it. Would recommend a walk around the town, not just Perry's Road.

This small town is close to Tokyo. The road is lovely and it makes you go back to the old time of Japan.
