A seaside resort, Ushimado

Hi

We are heading for a seaside resort of Okayama, Ushimado in Setouchi City!

 

We swung by ‘Yumeji Art Museum – Bunkan’ on the way to Ushimado.
It takes 45min by car via Okayama blue line.

 

Yumeji Takehisa is a well-known painter from Okayama.

This is the house where Yumeji was born.

He had been living here till he became 16 years old.

 

His paintings and books are exhibited in the house.

What’s more, you can feel the atmosphere of the house where he grew up in.

It goes without saying that his room is preserved!

 

This house is well-kept even though it was built about 250 years ago.
The thatched roof which we hardly ever see nowadays also remains!

 

His workshop ‘Syonen Sansou’ that he built in Tokyo was restored near his house.

Next, we visited ‘Ushimado Olive Park’, it takes 25min by car from the museum.

What surprised us the most was its extensive grounds


There are about 2000 olive trees in this park.

Shall we go up the tower?

From the top of that, it overlooks the sea and small islands
The contrast between blue sky and olive fields is breathtaking

There is a shop on the ground floor of the tower.

At the shop, you can buy various products such as sweets, foods, and soaps which are made of
olives.

The picture on the left side, it’s ‘Olive soy sauce’. It matches not only Japanese cuisine, but also other kinds of cuisine.

The other one is ‘Olive glace’, sugared olives.
It can be used for cooking or it’s also good  to eat with yogurt and ice cream! It’s up to you

 

We discovered an ice cream with ‘Olive glace’!

It seems to be tasty! Let’s try

The fresh scent of olives gives extra flavour to sweet ice cream… yummy!

I’m a huge fan of this shop, so I always come by here when I visit Ushimado
 

The shop offers freshly made ice cream, and the menu is changing regularly.
Actually, the shop has its own farm so as to get fresh milk everyday

 It opens at 12, however, it’ll close when ice cream is sold out.

 

You can choose a single (350yen) or a double ice cream (400 yen).
We had flavour of peach, blue berry, chestnut and milk.
