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.

Local Bakeries’ Choice: Bakery Teruo (Okayama City)

Bakery Teruo in Okayama City

Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to introduce Bakery Teruo in Okayama City.

Bakery Teruo (Okayama City)

Bakery Teruo is located in Kita-Ward of Okayama City, not far from Toiyacho where Onsaya Coffee and many stores stand. I have seen this store on TV as a recommended bakery by local bakeries, so why not give it a shot?


More bread is in stock at scheduled time which is most likely in the morning. Since it was introduced as a good croissant bakery, Ren (Mrs. Wada) couldn’t resist not to pick one.


Done with payment and we moved to its eat-in section. Hot/cold drinks are available as well. Coffee is like 100 yen with free refill. What a deal. According to Ren, croissant was pretty good. I tried other bread and they were good as well! I myself enjoyed the seat. Heh heh.


OK, let’s call it a day.
