If castles aren’t your thing you could always relax at the beach or an onsen (Japanese hot bath). The Izu Peninsula is the closest part of Izu to Tokyo. Here you can visit the beautiful beaches in Atami. Atami is a popular spot during the summer months because of this, so if you are expecting to get a hotel here, I would book early. On your walk from the station to the beach, are many restaurants and shops. If you are hungry I recommend stopping to eat Kimeidai. Kimedai is a red snapper known for it’s golden yellow eyes. It’s a fish specifically caught in Atami. Be warned though, if you are squeamish it is not a dish to be ordered. It’s served to you whole or as the head. You then must pick the meat out of the head or body yourself with chopsticks. If you are fine with this, splurge and try it. It’s definitely worth it, and it’s now my favorite fish!
