Cafe Dinner in Toiyacho: Ryugi

Cafe Dinner in Toiyacho: Ryugi

Ola amigos. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to introduce you a fine cafe called Ryugi in Toiyacho, Okayama City.

Cafe Dinner in Toiyacho: Ryugi

Ryugi is in a business building just across from Toiyacho Terrace in Toiyacho, Okayama City. It’s near by the mai-mai cafe and Onsaya Coffee. I saw another cafe in the same building though perhaps check it out another time.

It looks more like a restaurant though it serves a drink & sweets (three pieces!) combo for very reasonable price during the day.

We took the combo deal and now gotta go get them ourselves. Yes, an interesting part of this place is that you help yourself, like a buffet. It had 6 kinds of sweets in the showcase. Gosh, we’d pick one of each so we could try all kinds!

Tada. Chocolate tart, cheese cake, chiffon cake, brownie, pudding, matcha-chocolate baked donut. Hm, that’s a lot!
To be frank, these tasted alright, not so spectacular. Plus, it turned out, that was too much for us (burp). We better know how much we are capable of having.

Alright. Let’s call it a day.

How do you find it? It is surprisingly reasonable, isn’t it? Well, we learned that it doesn’t always go with the quality, (=_=)

Ushimado Olive Garden in Okayama

Hello world! It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to show you around Ushimado Olive Garden in Okayama.

Ushimado Olive Garden in Okayama

Ushimado Olive Garden is in the beautiful Ushimado area facing the Setouchi Sea where it has been featured as “Okayama’s Aegean Sea”. Well, Japanese like this kind of catch and you may be thinking what’s the point of seeing European stuff in Japan. Anyway, the point is Ushimado is a neat place. (^v^)

It’s admission-free. Go up the hill with a bunch of olive trees on the side. Olive products made from these are available at a store called Olive Store at the top.
