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.
