Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to introduce an organic food cafe in Okayama called Ito this time.

Organic Food Cafe: Ito in Bizen City (Okayama)

Ito cafe is located in Bizen City, Okayama Prefecture. Just a few-minute walk from JR Mitsuishi Station. A nicely done kominka cafe. OK, why don’t we go investigate?

It is run by a couple. The first impression I had was slow and relaxing. I like that.

We came in for food actually. Today’s lunch and pizza lunch would be great. For pizza, we picked from standard margarita or soya sauce with veggies. Apparently it is cooked in oven made of bricks from the brick factory next door. Sounds neat! Today’s lunch was millet croquette and some other vegetarian side dishes. Yum. They seem to use only organic stuff.

We couldn’t resist not to get a chocolate cake since we saw it on menu. It was super rich and a good pair with coffee. I preferred darker coffee for this personally but good good…

Ajisai Festival in Bizen City: Saihoin Temple

Hi there, it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to share our trip to Ajisai Festival in Bizen City this time.

Ajisai Festival in Bizen City: Saihoin Temple

Just like Mrs. Wada has introduced Kibitsu Shrine, there are a bunch of Ajisai (hydrangea) spots in Okayama. More than 3,000 ajisai flowers bloom at Saihoin temple in rainy season. Usually mid-June to early July is the best time. I suggest to visit early morning because flowers get dried in the afternoon and also to avoid the crowd.
