This is Shirataki Sanso, a western style building quietly blending in the surroundings. They serve fabulous food, basically Japanese with fresh local produce. The interior of the house feels warm and historical. A special dining experience awaits you. posted by jasmine

Cabbage patch looks good!

November 1st, 2012 | Posted by hot in Shimanami1 - (Comments Off)

  This sprawling cabbage patch is at the bottom of Mt. Shirataki. Even cabbages can be a feast for the eyes while you are on a trail. Nearby stands Shirataki Sanso, which once belonged to a foreign missionary as the residence and now is a restaurant/lodge. The lunch here is a bliss.  posted by jasmine

Double-decker In-no-shima Bridge

Sachi, Yoko, and Richard taking advantage of the vantage point to take a photo with the bridge. In-no-Shima Bridge has two stories and the lower is for pedestrians, bikes, and compact motorbikes. Good for a change. The Shimanami scenic route offers a variety of bridge experiences.   Posted by jasmine
