    岡山市のちょっと外れにある洋菓子のアウトレット。大人気です。駐車場も広いです。土日は入るのに待たないといけないことも。 最近は東京でもスーパーやコンビニでドンレミーの商品を見かけます。 ただ、規格外商品を取り扱っているので格安でケーキやプリン、ロールケーキなどを買えます。家族4人分、数日もつほど買ってもせいぜい1000円台かと。普通に美味しいし、オススメです!

    A coffee and bean roasting specialty shopped founded in 1971 standing in the center of the Bikan Historical Quarter. The shop’s popular coffee is made from carefully selected beans which are further sorted in the shop, then carefully roasted and nel drip brewed. In addition to menu standards such as Kilimanjaro, customers can also enjoy daily and seasonal coffees. The shop also sells beans for home use.

    I think this is the world’s most original coffee. Not cheap but their interpretation of a cappuccino delicious. Lovely in the garden out back.

    予約対応有りで、魚介料理は絶品。特にオコゼ刺身の薄造り、肝•皮、唐揚げ、あます事なく堪能しました。 地酒も良く、特に伊佐見の芋焼酎は最高です。 定番の酒類は良心的価格だと思います。 3人だったのですが、料理も良く予算オーバー気味でしたがクレジット決済可能ですので問題ありません。 倉敷市に立ち寄る事があれば、また行きたいと思います。

    A café operated out of a remodeled old private home with lattice doors, a tiled roof, and white walls located in Hommachi, Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture. Inside, the café retains much of the original old interior style, giving it a soothing and quiet atmosphere. A tatami mat seating area is situated just past the earthen floor of the entrance; in the inner part of a café, customers can view the elegant inner garden. The restaurant’s seasonal fruit parfaits are particularly popular—strawberry in spring, peach in summer, Japanese chestnut in fall, and more. The spicy, flavorful Miyake curry and homemade cakes are also well-reviewed.

    It was late afternoon on a cold December day and we longed for a warm place to stop for some hot tea and cake. But most cafes had already closed or featured big plastic ice cream cones outside. So we...

Okayama Areas

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.
