    A sightseeing boat used for a 20-minute-cruise looks exaxctly like a U.S. gunboat ship when the United States demanded Japan to open to the world in mid 19th century. It starts from Shimoda Port every day from 9:10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

    Fare: 1000 yen for adult, 500 yen for children 12 or under.

    From Shuzenji station in the middle part of Izu, there is a bus service to Kawazu station once every one or two hours. It takes about 90 minutes from Shuzenji to Kawazu station. From Kawazu station take Izukyu line and it takes about 15 minutes to Izukyu Shimoda station.

    Odoriko Express is a non-stop train service from Tokyo to Shimoda or Shuzenji. It saves the hassle of Shinkansen-local-train transit at Atami and the duration of the train ride is not that different. It takes about 2 hours and 43 minutes from Tokyo. During summertime it is hard to get reserved ticket so get the ticket in advance as early as you can.

    **Odoriko #105
    Tokyo: 9:00....Izukyushimoda 11:43 Fare (one way) 5,480 yen using non-reserved seat ticket. 6, 090yen(reserved) 7,980 yen for green car (first class) ticket.
