・Hishio no Sato
Access: about 4 minutes by car, or 25 minutes on foot from the guest house
Hishio no Sato lies in a corner of Shodoshima, and has rows of soy sauce warehouses and Tsukudani shops. Go for a stroll and take a look at the soy sauce warehouses with their black weatherboard walls, and Tsukudani factories. You will be delighted by their spicy fragrance. From the Meiji period up to the apogee of the Showa period, there were 400 soy sauce breweries. Now there are just 21 left, many of which are registered as cultural assets. Here you can feel the roots and the warmth of the Japanese people. You can also experience making Moromi broth (a fermented broth made with soy sauce)
※For details, please inquire directly to the factories.
Access: 10 minutes by car. On a lookout from where you can get a panorama view of the Uchinomi Bay, you can find the Roadside Station Shodoshima Olive Park.

■A word from the Hosts
Come and visit us by boat to Shodoshima, the olive island. Come and enjoy our lovingly prepared dinners using locally caught fresh fish, our rock and granite baths, the scent of our cedars and the warmth of our woods. In the Seto Inland Sea, we have different fresh fish in every season. They come in and go away as the seasons change, so you can always have fresh seasonal taste. The delicious taste of our small fish is well-known throughout the country.
