This large guesthouse is perched in a quiet location about 10 minutes uphill walk from the main road that runs along Shimoda's lovely Shirahama beach, a mecca for surfers. There is an hourly bus service between the beach and Shimoda rail station. The guesthouse has Western and Japanese style rooms, free wifi, and you can order dinner as well as... More

We made a last-minute decision to spend a day and night in Izu and the website for Pension Sakuraya was the first that popped up. I made the booking without doing too much research, so arrived with a little trepidation. However, Yamamoto-san is a friendly, easy-going host who made our rushed trip a relaxing, enjoyable experience. We did not have... More

Excellent place to stay! Located toward the top of of hill, it provides an excellent view of the beach and all eats and places to drink are within walking distance. The owners provided great service, excellent tips for places to go and top notch breakfast in the morning. Don't miss an opportunity to stay here if you get the chance!

We (2 adults, two kids) loved Pension Sakuraya. The beach is fantastic (more beaches are just around the corner, but you need your own car). We had the beach to ourselves as high season hadn't begun yet. The water was refreshing and super-clean. Our host Mr. Yamamoto was however the highlight of our stay. His English is brilliant and he... More

Good location - a 5 minute walk to perhaps Shimoda's nicest beach but a bit out of town. The beach is long and wide but super busy during July/August, both in and out of water. Having own transportation helps to get to southern beaches where you might actually find some uncovered sand and breathing room in the water. The place... More

It was our first visit to Shimoda and the owner, Yamamoto-san was very helpful before and during our visit. He speaks English and told us a great place to snorkel. The breakfast was great and we really liked Shirahama beach a few minutes away from the Pension Sakuraya. We stayed in the Western style room with a bathroom and twin... More

We spent a few days with my wife and my 18-month son at Pension Sakuraya a few weeks ago and we enjoyed it a lot! The owners are very friendly and helpful, the food is awesome and the Japanese-style room we had was very nice. Overall a great place to rest and enjoy the nearby beach!

All in all a great place to stay. Its located close to a very nice beach where you can relax and watch the surfers and also pop to the conveniently located 7 11 on the beachfront for drinks and icecreams when needed.

Thanks to Yamamotosan and Pension Sakuraya that made my day in Shimoda another great day in my life. I was there last week with my husband. Before getting there, I was a bit pissed off as my husband took the wrong way. It was my long and tired day. But once I got there and met Yamamotosan, we started talking... More
