Atami (熱海市; -shi) is a city located in Shizuoka, Japan. The name literally means "hot ocean", a reference to the town's famous onsen hot springs. Atami has been a resort since the 8th century, and is now part of Hakone-Izu National Park . Much of the extensive art collection of eccentric multimillionaire and religious leader Mokichi Okada is now housed in the MOA Art Museum in Atami.
The Tokaido Shinkansen stops in Atami, and its easy accessibility increases its popularity.
