    Kagawa Pref. Kagawagunnaoshimachou Honmura Middle back 1167
    Located in the Honmura district of Naoshima Town, Cafe Salon Nakaoku is a secluded, home-like café in a refurbished traditional farmhouse. The café owner is a native-born Naoshima islander. The café is renowned for its coffee, particularly its original-blend coffees with a “fruity” flavor that are the house specialty, but there is also a wide range of alcoholic beverages available. Cafe Salon Nakoku is located about three minutes’ walk from Minamidera with its Art House Project, in which a vacant house has been repurposed as an art museum. The café is a great place to unwind in a relaxing atmosphere.

    The setting and atmosphere alone were worth it. The food and service just as good. Best restaurant we visited in Naoshima and probably best in Japan so far

    Aisunao is a Japanese restaurant located in a converted traditional house (built around 80 years ago) in the Honmura district of Naoshima Town. The restaurant is easily recognized by the blue entrance curtain featuring a stylized and very cute depiction of a rice bowl. The house specials include a wide range of flavorful dishes featuring organically-grown unpolished rice (with a pleasantly chewy consistency) and vegetables. Many of the dishes served here are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and the restaurant also offers a range of vegan-friendly desserts made without eggs or dairy products.

    If you are vegetarian or vegan, you may have a hard time finding place to eat on Naoshima. But Aisunao serves a good quality food and it’s even vegetarian/vegan. The interior is modern/retro, using...

    The retro-modern Kaikosha Cafe with its Western-style architecture and bright, glass walled interior is adjacent to Former Zentsuji Kaikosha, an Important Cultural Property. It's a great place to unwind while you dine. They offer breakfast and lunch, light meals, and desserts. We recommend their sweet and simple home-made donuts prepared with a special variety of local barley daishi-moch-mugi barley.

    雰囲気も良く静かでゆっくりできました。 気色のよい庭を見ながら「焼きドーナツ」や「偕行社パフェ」を味わえます。 ちなみに駐車場は市役所に駐車すれば無料です。 駐車場の入口の係員に申告してください。

    This shop serves fare they think is so amazing they can’t help putting it on the menu. It’s great whether you're just having a coffee or getting a full meal. They offer hand-made cuisine, a variety of cakes, and seasonal sweets (available from 2:00 p.m.,). Seats are limited, so it's best to make a reservation by the day before at the latest.

The café has an open and inviting atmosphere and a large garden area that faces the sea. Their homemade curry and pizzas are popular, and they have sweets such as Naoshima apple cake and vanilla ice cream too.

    A cafe located a three-minute walk from Marine Station Naoshima. People love the restaurant's food made with fresh seafood and vegetables and the establishment can be used as a cafe in the daytime and as a bar at night. The cafe also offers takeout perfect for bringing along while taking a walk on the island; enjoy the local sights with a bubble tea or smoothie in hand. The establishment also has a guesthouse with three rooms, making it a great place from which to base your sightseeing activities.

    We got here on the later side with a party of 5 and were seated right away. We ordered highballs and cocktails, sashimi, and fried chicken. Everything was delicious. Service was quick and friendly...

    "A ""garage dining cafe"" which primarily serves Loco Moco and Taco Rice. Operating out of a renovated garage, customers can enjoy Loco Moco and Taco Rice at this open air style cafe and restaurant. Visitors can also eat desserts and drink fresh soft drinks and alcoholic beverages like draft beer in the open air. In addition, the cafe offers an abundant selection of takeout options."

    My partner loved the burger so much he had to get two (although one is more than enough for a regular person)! Super tasty with extra avacado and cheese. Hash brown also delish

    A cafe in operating out of a village government office which served the governor of Kurashiki from the time when Naoshima was under direct imperial control and Hyoemon 21st head of the Miyake clan, was appointed the first headman until the early Meiji period. The two buildings of the cafe, the main building and a row house with a room for guards to live in, have been designated Cultural Properties and groups of 10 or more with an advance reservation can enjoy a meal in the tatami mat room of the main building while gazing at the site's Japanese garden.

    Cycled past here in the rain, went in. Delicious curry - only 2 options, veg curry or chicken curry when we went, which suits me just fine. Warm inside, chef and host spoke English well, great music...

    Strawberry farm’s Ichigoya is a popular place for strawberry desserts like crepes and shaved ice made with strawberries grown on their farm. They also serve curry rice, making Ichigoya a full-fledged restaurant. Their strawberry roll cake makes a great gift. They are about a five-minute walk from Ieura Port.

    いちごパフェ。硯地区から家島地区へ歩いてると途中にいちごづくしのいちご屋の看板が。もう歩き疲れて甘いものが食べたい。店内のテーブルも全部違って手作り感がある小さなお店。地元のいちごを使ったスィーツメニューの写真が壁に大きく貼ってました。ソフトクリームベースのチョコッと食べたい大きさのいちごパフェをチョイス。疲れた身体に優しい甘さ。メニューにはいちごカレーもありました。

    While looking out over olive groves and the Seto Inland Sea, Farm's Table Chuzaemon prepares dishes with a special focus on olive oil. You'll love their cuisine made with liberal amounts of fresh, top-grade olive oil. On sunny days, the open terrace is the best choice for dining. It is a 10-minute walk from Ikeda Port.

    We went looking for somewhere to eat on Shodoshima Island in mid November and was surprised at the lack of available places to eat . We found Mother’s on the second floor of this building and were...

    Kagawa Pref. Takamatsushi Kitahamachou 3-2 Kitahama alley-h
    This café is in Kitahama Alley, an old warehouse town converted into a retro commercial complex in Kitahama-cho, Takamatsu City in Kagawa Prefecture. When you open the door, you are greeted with a tasteful space that makes good use of its location with the islands dotted around the Seto Inland Sea, the boats sailing back and forth in front of your eyes, the rusted tin and the vintage interior design. It has an extensive café menu with carefully-selected tea and coffee served in collaboration with a home-roasted coffee shop in Yashima. The food menu, which includes pizza, curry and bagels is also popular.

    Whilst waiting for our ferry across to Naoshima Island we went... as we always do... in pursuit of the best coffee in town... and this was a truly wonderful surprise. Housed in a pretty run-down...

    お昼のメニューは3種類(ピザ、リボッタリースープとパン、チリンドロン トショウスルワンプレート)しかなく、どれもどこかで調理してきた袋詰からお皿に乗せて電子レンジでチンをし温卵と野菜を乗せた極簡単なもので、その場で調理をしたのでないと思う。味が良いなら許されるが、どれも美味しくなく、これなら国道沿いのうどん店のほうがよっぽどまし。結構お客はやってくるのが建物や景色にだまされているのではないだろうか...

    四国村の出口のところにある、喫茶店です。素敵な建物を眺めながら通り過ぎようとしたら、登録有形文化財とのこと。しかも喫茶店で、神戸から移築して表にはロンドンから移したという大ぶりの風変わりなポストがでんと座っていました。店の中は広々して、古いけどしっかりしたつくりのテーブルと椅子が満ちていました。

Kagawa Areas

around-area-map

Japan’s smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone’s throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa’s prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country’s best gardens.
