  • Sesshu Hirakawa Hermitage

    Okayama Soja-shi Ide 589-1
    A 10-minute walk from JR Soja Station. This long-standing Japanese confectioner was founded in the first year of the Meiji period. Their well-known hallmark product, Sesshu Monaka (a wafer cake filled with red bean paste), draws its name from a tale about the painter Sesshu. Legend states that when he was a young monk in training, he drew a picture of a mouse using his tears. The shell is an adorable mouse shape made from local Okayama mochi-rice and the red bean paste interior is made from luxurious high-quality Hokkaido adzuki beans. The treat keeps well and is a popular souvenir. Also recommended is another of their leading products, their Tenchu cylindrical mochi bean-jam cake. It draws its appearance from the huge rocks of Mt. Tenchu which appeared in the poetry of poet Akiko Yosano.

Okayama Areas

around-area-map

Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan’s Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
