Villa Shirama is a resort-style hotel just minutes from Shirahama Beach in Shimoda, Japan.

All rooms come with a kitchen and cooking equipment so you can bring food and cook it right here. There is also a large BBQ area atop a hill on the property that supports groups of up to 20, so you can enjoy a great outdoor dining experience in a beautiful setting.

We have also a sauna, climbing wall, yoga space, ping pong table, skateboard area, library, and more! There are so many ways to enjoy a fun and relaxing time in nature with your family or friends.

Nearby Shirahama Beach has fine white sand and medium-sized waves just right for surfing, boogie boarding, bodysurfing or just swimming. Shimoda is a short 2-5 hours by train from Tokyo, and is a great place to spend a weekend out of the city.

Villa Shirahama: English Information

It takes ten minutes to walk from the Villa to Izu Shimoda Beach, following a footpath that leads you directly to the sea. The beautiful beach is perfect for walking along, surfing, or relaxing by the waves.


Next to the beach there is a friendly rental surf shop where you can rent surfboards, bodyboards and softboards. They also offer lessons for all abilities at their surf school. Simply ask at the surf shop to organise a lesson!


There is a great hiking course from the Villa that leads you to Nesugata Mountain, where you can enjoy an amazing view of Izu Shimoda Beach. The whole course takes approximately two hours, and is a great way to see the surrounding area.


We recommend taking a sea kayak around the Izu Shimoda Bay. If you are interested, we can introduce you to our good friend who is a local guide!


We have great shared BBQ facilities at the Villa that you can use from 17:00 to 21:00. For adults, it costs 1500 Yen, and for children 500 Yen. If you are staying in Hau’oli or Tree, there are BBQ spaces outside your rooms. We provide the BBQ space and tongs, but please bring your own food. We can recommend nearby shops, so just ask!


Our sauna was specially hand built by our owner, and is really popular with guests. Enjoy the ocean view or looking up at the stars as you immerse yourself in the relaxing atmosphere.

For 1-4 people, it costs 10,000 Yen for 90 minutes (not including tax). 2000 Yen per extra guest. Open from 15:30/17:30/19:30, book in advance. Other times are available for multiple-night guests. (Not open during summer.)

Other activities

All around the Villa, we have many different facilities where you can enjoy yourself in nature and indoors. This includes a trampoline in our garden, yoga space, indoor bouldering wall, ping-pong table, and a skateboard area. We also hold monthly outdoor cinema events showing environmental-related films. This is free for guests, and we sell drinks at the outdoor bar throughout the film, but feel free to bring your own food and drinks. (Non-staying guests welcome at 1000 Yen per adult and free for under-18s.)

We look forward to welcoming you to Villa Shirahama. See you soon!
