Perry Road’s Café and Restaurant Scene

Perry road has a café and restaurant scene as rich and diverse as its history. With plenty to see and do, eat, and drink and located only a 10-minute walk from the station, a visit to Perry Road is definitely worth putting aside an entire day for. Whether you’re after traditional tea houses, Western style lunches, or boozy Saturday nights, you can find everything you need in this historic pocket of Shimoda.

Sitting right next to the Perry Road canal is Sogabo, one of the area’s most popular and quaint cafes. This traditional style Japanese coffee house is a great stop off for those wanting to try some of the best authentic, whisked matcha lattes in the area. Covered in tatami mats with a few Western style seating options, the café has both an indoor and outdoor space, so you can take advantage of the warmer summer, spring, and autumn months. The light drenched private house and gallery is filled with stunning local art, pottery, and true traditional Japanese nostalgia. Also serving seasonal local dishes, it’s the perfect place for a quick pick me up while wandering the streets of Shimoda.

If you’re after a place with a more laid back contemporary vibe, you can’t go past Cubster, located just an easy five-minute walk from the heart of Perry Road. Influenced by more Western tastes this cozy café prides itself on producing some of the best coffee in the region. They also serve a variety of Panini style sandwiches catering to all dietary requirements. In recent years they’ve also garnered a reputation for creating some of the best French toast this side of Tokyo, so it’s worth saving some space for dessert. For dinner they offer a wide range of salads, pastas, and rice dishes.

Soul Bar

One of the more striking establishments on Perry Road is Soul Bar located in the heart of the area. Endearingly ramshackle, this venue is all about the love of music. Playing host to a rotating roster of live bands, and boasting an impressive vinyl collection, if you’re even just the most casual music fan you can’t go past this place. As well as serving up delicious tunes, they also serve ice-cold beer and tasty bar style food. Be wary though the place is only open weekends, so make sure you time your trip accordingly because a night at Soul Bar is one you don’t want to miss.One of the more striking establishments on Perry Road is Soul Bar located in the heart of the area.

Just a stone’s throw from Soul Bar sits Page One, a slightly more reserved Perry Road contemporary. Run by a local couple this pizza and pasta restaurant is open for coffee, lunch or dinner from 11:00am until 8:00pm every day except Wednesday and Thursdays. Rather cozy (though that’s part of its appeal) there are only five tables indoors but if the weather is good it’s definitely worth sitting outside by the canal where you can take in the beauty of the area while you enjoy your meal. Whether it’s authentic mozzarella salad, a classic style pizza or a hearty plate of pasta, the welcoming staff at Page One will serve your meal up with a good dose of warm hospitality.

Kama’aina

If you’re feeling the beachy vibes of Izu, then make your way over to Kama’aina, Perry Road’s iconic Hawaiian restaurant. Open and spacious Kama’aina is the ideal location to laze away the afternoon while enjoying a Japanese take on some of Hawaii’s most popular dishes. If the weather is good, there’s nothing better than sitting out on the restaurant’s stylish front deck while you enjoy some of Kama’aina’s famous homemade ice cream and freshly squeezed juice.
