At the westernmost tip of Okayama prefecture where it borders Hiroshima prefecture, you can find Roadside Station Kasaoka Bayfarm. This place is amazing!
One of the things that Kasaoka Bayfarm is known for is its “all-you-can-pack-in” events.
On the day we visited, they were right in the middle of their “Oyster Festival” day. Apparently they prepared 10 tons of Kasaoka-grown oysters and a ton of Yorishima Island grown oysters!!
Within the time limit, you can pack as many oysters as possible into your basket.
This particular “all you can pack in” event is held only during the oyster festival, but every morning from 10AM, Kasaoka Bayfarm holds an all-you-can-pack-in event for fish. As long as the head of the fish fits in, it’s allowed.
All the seafood shipped every morning from the Kasaoka Islands is fresh and truly delicious. And cheap, as well!
The second thing Kasaoka Bayfarm is known for is its flowers. It’s located on Japan’s second largest reclaimed area (from the sea), and the flower field on this vast farmland is quite a sight for the eyes to behold.
During spring you can see rapeseed blossoms, in early summer poppies, in mid-summer sunflowers, and in autumn cosmos flowers. A camera is an absolute must.
How did you like Kasaoka Bayfarm? Would you like to visit? This article only offers a glimpse of its many wonders!
Next time we’ll introduce the buffet and some souvenirs made with Kasaoka’s abundant ingredients!
