A direct train (Odoriko or Superview Odoriko) runs from Tokyo Station to Izukyu Shimoda Station. A slightly faster way is to take the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Atami where you can connect with the Odoriko or Superview Odoriko to Izukyu Shimoda. The best Shinkansan to take if your schedule permits is the Hikari 479 which leaves Tokyo station at 16:03. (still changing trains in Atami) Total travel time is less than 2 hours.

Note for parents: car#10 on Superview Odoriko has a play room for kids that is also equipped with a nursing/changing room – the ultimate way to travel with your little ones! Once at Shimoda station, get a cab and tell the driver to go to “Kisami no White Beach” (it is about 1,500 yen/10 min drive). Bon voyage!
