Shimoda Park (Shiroyama Park)

A natural park covering the cape overlooking Shimoda Bay. Built around the ruins of Ushima Castle, the park has a walking path lined with old pine trees and cherry blossom trees, and flowers like camellias, azaleas and hydrangeas. In particular, the approximately 150,000 hydrangea plants that bloom in June are so popular that a hydrangea festival is held every year.

The park also has a monument that commemorates Commodore Perry who was responsible for the opening of Japan to the West and Townsend Harris, the first US ambassador to Japan; and another monument in honour of Shimooka Renjo, a pioneer photographer of Japan. The observatory deck offers magnificent views of Shimoda Port and Suzaki Peninsula.
