Hiratsuka Restaurant Guide

The city of Hiratsuka in central Kanagawa prefecture flourished in the Edo period as one of the 53 stages along the Tokaido road. Along with Tsurumi, Totsuka, and Odawara, Hiratsuka serves as a hand-off point during the annual Hakone relay race.Though it has a growing population of 260,000, the city is served by only one train station; most residents use the ample bus routes.Though the roads to the suburbs have been well-maintained it's still very easy to live close to town, and the percentage of residents who do so is high. Rose cultivation began here in the 1950s and has been maintained as one of the best rose-growing areas to this day - Hiratsuka roses are very popular.On the south side facing Sagami bay is a 4km seaside stretch of pine forest and sandy beaches considered one of the "Eight Sights of Hiratsuka", popular for marine sports and diversions. It began hosting the July "Shonan Hiratsuka Tanabata Festival" after the war, and with over 3 million tourists visiting to view the Tanabata decorations it is the most popular Tanabata festival in the country.
