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.
Annual Olive Festival
Every October it holds an olive festival to celebrate the harvest season. Free bus rides are available from a temporary parking below the mountain. It offers stuff like free tasting of fresh olive oil, experiencing harvesting olives, and some free food as well (paella)! There are many food stands as well.
