Olive Garden, Shodoshima

Shodoshima is known to be the birthplace of olive culture in Japan. The story says that attempts at growing olives were made at different locations throughout Japan but that all other places except Shodo island failed in their trial. The Olive Garden celebrates this success. Strangely, the park adopted a Greek theme (as Greek olives are very famous) although I’m not sure if there was ever any Greek immigrant on Shodo island.

Gaijin San

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
