I have been there mid October. The beach was womderfoul with surrounding rock and sand on the beach like in the movies. Shimoda itself is a nice city with a cheap and nice garden and cable car.

Just 3 hours away from Tokyo it is almost hard to believe that you can find this pristine environment. Great for relax, swim, surf and for people watching. Since beach is shallow it is also good for kids. Escape routes are well marked should they be needed. Off-season there are just vending machines if you need to quench your thirst. The hungry need to take a taxi to closest restaurant.

After finding reccommendations for Suzukisan and his Real surf school via google, we decided to take the plunge and book some lessons while we were on holiday in Shimoda. We were a family group of three who were all varying abilities from absolute beginner to intermediate. Based out of his surf shop near Tatadohama beach (on the main highway from Shimoda), he offers board & wet suit hire, lessons and advice. His two hour lessons were well thought out and great fun, and his teaching was awesome. As someone who speaks little Japanese his instruction was clear and his sense of humour infectious. Even my father, the 'silver surfer' at 61, managed to ride some waves on his first day thanks to Suzukisan. We can't wait till our next family outing back to this terrific coastal area of Japan. Compared to other places I have surfed, this was the best in terms of mixed ability and suitable for absolute beginners. If you are heading this way and love active holidays, this is a must on the schedule.
