Best Restaurant of Shodoshima in the Seto Inland Sea

The Seto Inland Sea lies between Honshu, Kyushu and Shikoku. Of the many islands in the Seto Inland Sea, the second largest is the Shodoshima. It is otherwise known as Setouchi Art Islands, or more commonly known as “Olive Island” having its history as Japan’s first location for the successful cultivation of olives.

Many tourists use the hotels at Shodoshima as a base for visiting the Setouchi Art Islands, a group of islands including Shodoshima in the Seto Island Sea which host a tri-annual art festival focused on contemporary art.

Let’s take a look at some of Shodoshima’s specialty gourmets and fashionable cafes.

    Nakabuan

    Somen

    Somen

    Nakabuan is a long established somen noodle making shop, and in more recent times a restaurant also. Here you’ll be able to enjoy rare experience of eating freshly made, raw somen noodles which have a chewy, rice cake-like texture. However, please be aware that the noodles aren’t available after 2p.m., so don’t leave your visit for too late in the day!

    Nakabuan is approximately 10-minute drive or a challenging long walk from Kusakabe Port, so we recommend travelling to the shop using a rental car, bicycle, or motorcycle.

    Hishio don

    Hishio don

    Shodoshima is famous for its soy sauce production, and this restaurant can be found in an area called "Hishio no Sato" (Soy Sauce Village), where Shodoshima's soy sauce breweries once flourished. Of the original 400 or so soy sauce producers in the area, around 20 remain to this day, which is enough to have you notice the alluring savory aroma of soy sauce drifting around in the air when you visit.

    Nonoka’s "Hishio Don" (rice bowl dish) is made using generous amounts of Shodoshima's soy sauce and local seafood and vegetables, and is a gourmet specialty of the island that you'll definitely want to try when visiting Shodoshima! The ingredients in the Hishio Don rice bowls differ by restaurant, so it's a tasty bit of fun comparing each one.

    Hishio no Sato is close to Sakate Port and a 5-minute walk from the Magi Bus Stop.
