Hinase Kashirajima Marche (Bizen City)

Kashirajima is an island in Bizen City, accessible through the bridge from Hinase where it is known for its oyster festival in February. However, on the day of this event we are expected to take a free boat ride from Hinase.

We left our car at the Gominoichi market. You can access by train easily as well. The nearest station (Hinase Station) is just a 5-minute walk.

The boat (ferry?) seems available every few hours. We were just at a perfect timing!

What a nice day huh? I can smell the sea. Kashirajima is actually not that far. It took only 10 minutes (!).

Here we are. Turns out, the market is very compact (just around the port) but enjoyable with different food and relaxing ocean view.

Aside from Kashirajima marche, there is a monthly market at Gominoichi market (where we caught a boat) as well (1st Sunday of every month).

Alright, let’s call it a day.

How do you find it? It was a bit like a getaway from the crowd and traffic. It may take you to slow life.

See you around!

Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty! I would like to share a morning market in Setouchi City this time.

It is a monthly morning market near JR Osafune Station as well as the Bizen sword museum, so access is easy. There is free parking also if you drive.

Walking down from a parking. The market is waiting right down there.

Explore the Market

It is a small market after all but with more than 20 local stores including some places we’ve visited before such as Organic Food Cafe Ito and &bread.

After passing through all, we came back to this store by an Italian guy who runs his farm in Akaiwa City. We couldn’t let go of lasagna! (damn we were starving!). We also got a cup of hot wine along with food (though alcohol free). Smell of cinnamon and spices give great appetite. Apparently ingredients are from his farm. Cool. We should take a visit sometime.
