Yummy lookin’ bread displayed in the showcase. You should come in early before they sell all out.

There is a pizza restaurant upstairs (under the same management, I think). We can eat in here as well. It serves drinks if you would like. You could just have a cup of water as well.

Alright, I got a sandwich and Ren (Mrs. Wada) got a croissant as always. Baguette is very crispy and tasty. Croissant was also good! In terms of baguette though, I feel this place is the best. I would like to try different bread next time.

Autumn Leaves in Gokei Valley, Soja City

Autumn Leaves in Gokei Valley, Soja City

Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to share our autumn-leaf watching in Gokei Valley, Soja City this time.

Autumn Leaves in Gokei Valley, Soja City

Gokei Valley is one of the most popular places for watching autumn leaves in Okayama Prefecture. Another place I’ve introduced before, Hofukuji Temple is only about 3 km away, so it would be nice to hop as well! Leaves in this area turn red/yellow early November and this beautiful scenery lasts for a month or so.

For drivers, I highly recommend to get there in the morning like 9 AM due to traffic in this season. It is not as busy as Okutsukei Valley though many people come by and soon it makes a long lineup for parking which is just a pain! >x<
