Are you looking for a nice beach vacation spot which isn't as far from Tokyo as Okinawa is? If so then Shimoda is the perfect spot! It's good for a night or two of getting out of the big city and getting a taste of nature. A great little town nestled in Shizuoka Prefecture, it is most famous for Shirahama Beach which is arguably the best beach within striking distance (3-4 hours) of Tokyo. Beware however that due to its beauty, the crowds flock so it will likely be quite crowded during your visit. You should try the combination of shaved ice and yogurt that they sell in front of the beach. It comes in a variety of flavors and it's unbelievably satisfying and refreshing on a hot summer day. Shirahama Shrine is located on some rocks on the far west of the beach. There are some incredible pictures that you can snap from that spot if there aren't too many people who follow you there ;) If you want to actually stay close to the madness, a Bed and Breakfast called A Million Roses Pension seems to have received several astounding reviews and might be worth investigating more.
