Gelato Treat at Matsuda Dairy Farm, Okayama City

Konnichiwa! It’s Mrs. Wada on duty. How’s your week so far? Take some time to look at the view and hope it helps you to refresh your mind.

The photo above is taken in Matsuda Farm, a dairy farm located nearby Okayama Airport. Just recently, I accompanied Mr. Wada to renew his driver’s license. After the renewal, we decided to check out this farm and its gelato.

By the way, this is the driver’s license center in Okayama City. I’m not only amazed by its building but also with how organized the process in there.

I often see gelato in cups from Matsuda Farm sold in different souvenir shops in Okayama. And finally, I’ve seen the place where those gelato products are coming from.

From the center, we followed the Route towards Okayama Airport. I searched the directions on Google Map beforehand, so it should be alright without internet connection. That’s what I thought until we encountered this road.

One of the times you can’t really say short distance is the best way to take.

After more than 10 minutes of rough and narrow road, filled with black butterflies, we survived passing through the hill and finally got a view of the dairy farm from afar. What a relief.

Tip: Do not use the road that passes through Okayama Kinryo Country Club. From Okayama Airport, follow Route 61 until you see a sign of Matsuda Dairy Farm (of the left side).

We went up all the way to the parking area where right next to it is a souvenir shop with a terrace.

We immediately went inside the shop and bought gelato.

We got matcha, rum raisin, and regular milk.

Their gelato is made of freshly drawn cow’s milk every morning. You can have your gelato at their terrace while enjoying the view of the farm right in front.

We were able to see and interact with cats, goats, rabbits, ducks, pony, roasters, peafowls, and more cows at close distance.

The staffs that I only saw were the ones stationed in the souvenir shop. We were free to roam around the area. It was a perfect weather for a perfect view.

  1. There are dairy farms nearby, but I’ve only passed them. I’m not sure they’re as nice as the farm described here.

    1. How about drop by sometime? 🙂 That’s if they allow visitors. Although there are other dairy farms within Okayama, this one might be the only one with this huge area that’s just an hour away from the central.

  2. I was just thinking the other day, I haven’t seen cows since I left England ! That first picture looks exactly like English country side – and that icecream looks lush !
