This park has loads of different vantage points of Shimoda and the bay. It is great for both sunrise and sunset and is very quiet and relaxing.

The Hydrangea festival is the highlight and the flowers are very pretty and worth a visit just for it.

Shimoda is an amazing and charming fishing town. Shimoda park is the perfect place for a late afternoon walk, just around sunset. Make sure to walk along the coast as well, to enjoy the beautiful sea view and small islands.

The park is quite large, with areas for camellia, hydrangea, and local plants. There are also some nice views of the harbor. It's fine for a hike, but it is not special enough to warrant going out of your way to see.
