Travel Guide

Atami Sun Beach showing a bay or harbor and night scenes

Hot springs, seaside views, and top sights from Atami Sun Beach to Ajiro Hot Spring—discover it all in Atami.

Atami is a scenic city of white tower blocks surrounded by green mountains. Beaches, gardens and historic buildings are the main attractions, creating an informative and relaxing setting. Visit Atami and imagine that you are a Tokyo resident heading for a weekend break on the coast.

See Atami Castle, a regional highlight, its elegant architecture overlooking Sagami Bay. Wander through the scenic grounds, admiring the pink blossoms of cherry trees and watching firework ceremonies on special occasions. As you inspect the façade and wander through the museum within, note that this isn’t a historic castle, but rather a replica structure that pays tribute to Japanese traditions. It was built in the 1950s and includes a museum focused on Japanese castles.

Continue learning about the local history and culture via Kinomiya Shrine, Kiunkaku Former Ryokan and the MOA Museum of Art.

Take a break in one of the parks and gardens spread across this leafy city. The Akao Herb and Rose Garden has a glorious arch of climbing roses, an elegant fountain and a maze of hedges. Wander along the paths of the Atami Baien Plum Garden and sit by the stream, admiring the purple glow of the blossoms. Hike with your kids through Himenosawa Park.

Bring your family to play in the shallow, protected waters of Nagahama Beach and Atami Sun Beach. Both sandy stretches are great for swimming with your kids, with sheltered bays and calm waters.

Overlooking Sagami Bay on the Izu Peninsula, the city lies at the eastern edge of Shizuoka prefecture in central Japan. From Tokyo, drive southwest for 65 miles (105 kilometers) to get here. You can also travel by a Shinkansen bullet train southwest from Shinagawa Station to Atami Station in about 1 hour. Explore the surrounding terrain for such landmarks as Fuji Hakone Izu National Park, Mount Fuji and Ōshima Island.

"スマートでないこと3つ。チェックインは画面タッチで行うが、駐車場代は別途フロント支払い。キャッシュレスがワンストップでできないのはスマートでない❗ 朝食が和食、洋食と選べるにはいいが、ドリンクは珈琲、紅茶、ウーロン茶に限られていて、ホットミルクを頼むと別途有料はスマートでない❗ 朝食は紙製のランチボックスに入れてくれるのだが、持ち帰りでなくカフェで食べるのにゴミを出すのは罪悪感があり、スマートでない❗"
