The historic hot spring town of Atami, located at Atami Station, has been looking after weary travelers for hundreds of years. Today the town remains a favorite getaway for Tokyoites due to its easy accessibility on the Tokaido Bullet Train – it is also a Gateway to the spectacular Izu Peninsula.
From Atami Station take a scenic trip down the east coast along the shoreline to the spectacular cherry blossom festival and waterfalls around Kawazu and then on to the beautiful white sand beaches of Shimoda and finally explore the rugged shoreline of Southern Izu.
You won’t believe you are just 2 hours from one of the biggest cities in the World.
