The Resort 21 Kurofune Train

From Atami to Shimoda

The Resort 21 Kurofune is part of a series of trains that travel the Izu area, between Atami Station and Izukyu Shimoda Station in Shizuoka Prefecture. The Black Ship Train is one of those.

Atami Station there are many onsen hot springs and beaches, as well as a nationally famous art museum. The MOA Art Museum even includes one of Toyotomi Hideyoshi’s tea rooms used for tea ceremonies! From Atami Station, there is a bus (it will say it’s headed to the MOA, it’s the last stop) that takes 10 minutes.

The museum is open from 9:30 to 16:30 daily except Thursdays. 1600 yen for adults, 800 for students, free for children 14 and under.

In the same area, the fishing town of Shimoda includes a port town and market with a very retro ambiance. Dried goods (such as squid and seaweed) are displayed by the light of gas lanterns.
There’s even a sake spot that’s been around since the Meiji Era!
