Event announcements, sight-seeing recommendations, bar and restaurant reviews, and other commentary from Shimoda and the surrounding area on the Izu peninsula.
On August 6th, 7th, and 8th, Shimoda held its second annual Candle Cafe. Which is not actually a cafe but a small festival with 1000s of candles lighting up the already beautiful Perry Road. Draft beer, cocktails and snack food was sold on the street. A good sound system oozed out smooth Jazz like Sade's "Your Love is King". There were plenty of places to sit and enjoy the ambience with a drink in hand. If you have yet to enjoy this classy festival of lights, don't miss it next year!
