The castle town by the ocean

Odawara is a small city just 30min by Shinkansen from Tokyo. It is easy accessible from Shinjuku by Odakyu Line or from Tokyo by Shinkansen and JR Line. You find there the famous Odawara Castle, a small Harbor where fresh seafood is brought into Odawara every day, a small beach to relax,  and one of the less crowded places to view the cherry blossoms in spring.
